Two Jackson City Councilmembers from Jackson’s east side are coming together for a joint neighborhood meeting. Ward 2 Councilmember Freddie Dancy and Ward 3 Councilmember Angelita V. Gunn have organized a neighborhood meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 6:30 p.m. at the Boos Recreation Center.
The councilmembers organized the meeting for residents to get updates from the Jackson Police Department on recent police activity in the neighborhood, along with learning about the Group Violence Intervention (GVI) strategy currently underway in Jackson. Also called GVI, this is a new strategy from the police department that looks for community-based approaches to reducing violence in the City.
Wards 2 and 3 cover all of Jackson’s east side neighborhoods, including the eastern half of Downtown Jackson. All residents are welcome to attend. The Boos Recreation Center is located in Loomis Park at 210 Gilbert St.
