Peace Center hosts community discussion on policing

Join a discussion on police policies and practices hosted by the WNY Peace Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the West Side Community Center, 161 Vermont St.

The discussion will be broken into three parts, "Inform, Reform and Transform," and will focus on the moral and ethical grounds of local policing.

Police officials and four candidates for Buffalo mayor will be attending, including Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant, who plans to run in the Sept. 12 Democratic primary; Mark J. F. Schroeder, comptroller for the City of  Buffalo, who also plans to run in the Sept. 12 Democratic primary; Terrence Robinson, a member of the city's Preservation Board, who says he will run in the Nov. 7 general election on the Green Party line; and Taniqua Simmons, a political newcomer, who has been endorsed by the Erie County Libertarian Party and plans to run in the November general election.

Incumbent Mayor Byron W. Brown will not be attending, organizers said.
