Public forum tonight to examine concerns about area crime and the legal system


A panel of local criminal justice officials will hold a public forum tonight to address community concerns about crime and the legal system.

The county's Ad-Hoc Committee on Human Rights, created in 1992 after race riots in Los Angeles, is sponsoring the town hall-style meeting from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Banneker Room of the county's George Howard Building in Ellicott City.

"The community is invited to provide comments and suggestions they would like to see," said Rufus Clanzy, administrator of the county's Office of Human Rights.

The 11-member panel includes Circuit Judge Lenore Gelfman, Police Chief G. Wayne Livesay, public defender Carol A. Hanson and Howard County Detention Center Director Melanie C. Pereira.
