“The majority of it’s going to be had in our native language in Spanish. So hopefully we have a nice showing of the Latino community and the community in general so that they can take part in an understanding what we are doing,” said Detective Andy Baez of the York City Police.

The forum was held at Still Meadow Church on Chestnut Street.
