The class shows people how APD operates in an effort to improve the relationship between the department and the community. Chief King said 15 people from various neighborhoods attended the 2018 session, and the participants provided good feedback. New features will be added to the March 7 session.

"It also shows them the resources we have," King said. "It just makes for a better partnership. It gets them involved. Because we can't be successful without them."
