Talk about policing 

 BAR HARBOR — The Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Police departments will hold a public forum webinar about police practices and policies Tuesday, July 7, at 6 p.m. 

The departments welcome this opportunity for community engagement and recognize that the Black Lives Matter movement is integral to this discussion,” a statement on a POLCO online survey related to the forum said. 

Maine law enforcement agencies issued a statement in early June condemning the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis. The Chiefs of Police Association, Sheriff’s Association and State Police also released a seven-page summary of current practices related to hiring, training, deescalation, use of force, body cameras and a national police misconduct registry.
