NEWARK, NJ - Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, announced today that the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office will sponsor a seminar tomorrow evening entitled, Know Your Rights: Immigration and Bias Issues.
The event will take place at Saint James Catholic Church, 143 Madison Street in Newark from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. It is open to the public.
The community meeting is part of the New Jersey Attorney General’s 21-County, 21st-Century Community Policing Project.
Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has asked all 21 county prosecutors to hold quarterly community meetings to discuss issues relevant to community policing in the 21st century. The goal of the project is to strengthen relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve – and to address areas of concern before conflicts arise.
This is the third meeting held by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. Community meetings have already been held on how police-involved shootings are investigated and the opioid crisis.
The public is invited to attend.
