Thank you to everyone for supporting the Community Safety Working Group (CSWG) for the first part of our charge. We are grateful to all residents who engaged with us to help us recommend alternative methods of public safety to serve all Amherst residents. Your lived experiences, your feedback, your public comment, and overall support does not go unnoticed and we are beyond grateful to represent the needs of the entire community. 

We hope you continue to stay involved and guide our work through coming to public comment, emailing us at cswg@amherstma.gov, and reaching out for meetings as necessary as we work our way into the second part of our charge, which is to make recommendations on reforms to the current organizational and oversight structures of the Amherst Police Department. For more information on our charge, meetings, and members please visit https://www.amherstma.gov/3566/Community-Safety-Working-Group.

  1. Thank you Ms. Owen, Ms. Walker, and all the members of the CSWG. I personally have learned a lot from watching and listening to your discussions, and I really appreciate the hard work and dedication you have all given to this process. I look forward to seeing positive change in policing in Amherst and the development of a BIPOC and multicultural center.
