Got a question about crime? Ask Fulton Chairman John Eaves in an online chat tomorrow

Fulton County Chairman John Eaves
The conversation about Atlanta's crime, and how to best combat it, will continue tomorrow afternoon with local residents and Fulton's highest ranking elected official.

Fulton County Chairman John Eaves plans to host an online discussion - one that's part of a series of meetings - about the county's public safety efforts. According to the chairman, there's been demand for more events where Atlantans can learn more about what's being done to reduce crime in their communities.

"After a multitude of concerns were expressed by residents, I thought that it was important to find other opportunities to speak directly to constituents about crime and safety," Eaves tells CL.

Earlier this month, Eaves took part in a southwest Atlanta meeting with Atlanta Police Chief George Turner, Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell, and other officials. Hundreds of attendees were able to vent about the area's crime and discuss how to make their neighborhoods safer.

After the meeting, Fulton's chairman told CL that he would host additional conversations to continue the dialogue in hopes of coming up with formal policy proposals later this year.

"This is another chance to hear their thoughts on the problems and share with them possible remedies," he says.

To join the conversation, visit Eaves' Facebook page around 1 p.m. and look for an invite on his wall to join the conversation. From there, post all the questions you've been dying to ask the Fulton County chairman.

If you can't participate, fear not: Eaves will also host another "Crime and Safety Summit" at Atlanta Metropolitan State College on April 2 at 6:30 p.m.
