How do you think we can curb violence in our community? Rochester Mayor Tom Richards and Police Chief James Sheppard want to hear your experiences and ideas.

Tuesday evening is the final of four “Voice of the Citizen” meetings.

Citizens will be asked to discuss the issue of violence under four categories: open-air drug sales and gate houses, gangs, guns and the culture of violence, bullying and truancy and house parties.

Tuesday’s meeting is at 6 p.m. at Lake Riley Lodge in Cobbs Hill Park.
