Ohio Task Force on Community-Police Relations to Hold Community Forum at Central State University

The statewide task force appointed by Ohio Governor John Kasich to review best practices for community policing will hold a public forum at Central State University on Monday, Feb. 9.

The 24-member Ohio Task Force on Community-Police Relations is holding meetings around the state before sending recommendations to the governor. The February 9 meeting, which is open to the public, is designed to gather community comments. The forum will be held in the Paul Robeson Cultural & Performing Arts Center.

The Task Force is chaired by John Born, Director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, and Nina Turner, former Ohio Senator. The five issues the governor charged the Task Force with exploring are: best community policing practices; law enforcement training; standards for law enforcement interaction with the community; the criminal justice system and community oversight; and involvement in law enforcement.


College Goal Sunday

Central State University will be the Greene County site for the statewide college financial aid event “College Goal Sunday.”

The free event will be held from 2 pm- 4pm on Sunday Feb. 8 in Room 114 in the Joshua I. Smith Center for Education & Natural Sciences. Parents and students can get help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the federal application that is required in order for a student to receive federal financial aid, including the Federal Pell Grant and student loans, as well as need-based state grants. Studies show that a student is 50% more likely to attend college when they complete the FAFSA.
