Phoenix officials plan to host a Teen/Young Adult Summit in Ahwatukee Foothills Aug. 23 in the hope of convincing area youth that they can trust police.

The event, scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. at the Pecos Community Center, 17010 S. 48th St., is one of six being conducted around the Valley this month, according to Toni Maccarone, Phoenix's public information director.

The meetings will be hosted by the Phoenix Community Engagement and Outreach Task Force, which was created in the spring to develop and implement an action plan to increase public confidence that the Phoenix Police Department will treat all people with respect, dignity and professionalism.

"We are reaching out to Phoenix's young residents to understand how they interact with police and within their community," said task force member Gail Knight. "We expect their insights to enlighten us as we move toward bringing Phoenix residents and police closer together."
