Gateway Cities Public Safety Leadership Summit
Crime-fighting summit draws AG, area police chiefs, mayors
MassINC gathered with Gateway City public safety leaders in Lawrence for an event hosted by Mayor Rivera, a co-chair of our Gateway Cities Innovation Institute. The meeting brought together mayors, city managers, and police chiefs representing nearly two dozen cities for an open dialogue on community policing and reentry. These Gateway City leaders were joined by Attorney General Maura Healey for an informal conversation over lunch. Responding to requests from local leaders, this convening was the first step toward a greater focus on public safety policy for the Gateway Cities Innovation Institute.
