A foundation in the names of Corey Jones and his mother sponsored a forum on the topic Thursday in Boynton Beach.
Panelists included civil, religious, and police leaders.
Organizers said understanding each other’s viewpoints will build a stronger and safer community.
“When you bring everybody together you have a common good, a sense of common good and everybody can share their ideas,” explained Terry Banks, Corey Jones’ uncle and a member of the Anita Banks Justice for Corey Foundation.
A Palm Beach Gardens police officer shot and killed Jones last year.
The department's chief announced Thursday he’s finished a pilot program testing body cameras. Now, he’s fast-tracking plans to equip more than 200 officers with the cameras.
