A Town Hall meeting will be held Tuesday to address violence in Atlantic City, along with the allegations of police brutality.

The local National Action Network is sponsoring the public meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. at the All Wars Memorial building, 1510 Adriatic Ave.

“Please come out and join us as we seek solutions,” President Steve Young said in a news release. “Learn what to do when approached by law enforcement.”

Mayor Don Guardian and police Chief Henry White are expected to be among the officials attending.

Three people were killed and seven wounded by gunfire within three weeks last month, after violence had been down last year.

Accusations against police will also be addressed, after the city garnered national attention last year due to a video allegedly showing police beating a Linwood man.

The meeting is open to everyone.
