Legal system, reforms topic of local forum next week

Prosecutors, police and public defenders each will take a role in a local public forum next week on the basic tenets of law enforcement, criminal justice and reforms at all levels of government to reduce barriers for marginalized and vulnerable populations.

Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney, city Commonwealth’s Attorney Joe Platania and Charlottesville-Albemarle Public Defender Elizabeth Murtagh will participate in the forum.

The discussion will be moderated by Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Hingeley.

The forum is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at CitySpace. It is the third in a series of six events sponsored by the Road Forward PAC.

Future forums are planned for March 25, on equity in public education; April 8, on state government’s relationship to localities; and April 22, on zoning and land use planning.
