Members of the Sandwich Police Department and community members supportive of racial justice and Black Lives Matter met recently in a desire to build trust and foster a relationship that will allow them to work together in the future. They were successful in creating a climate of safety and in laying the groundwork for continuing discussions. The conversation was facilitated by Sandwich Stands.
