A Killeen police officer helps block the intersection of South 2nd Street and Jasper Drive after an accident involving a motorcycle and another vehicle took place in Killeen Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.

The Killeen Police Department is hosting a “community conversation” in two weeks on Sept. 19.

“Join us for a conversation among community members, leaders and members of the police department in an effort to improve communication, exchange information, ideas and safety for all,” the police department said on its Facebook page.

The event will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Grace Christian Center, 1401 E. Elms Road, in Killeen.

Speakers have not yet been announced by the department.

The department asked that the community reach out to the department with what they want to talk about prior to the meeting.

Those ideas can be emailed to

I want to talk about why my tax payer dollars are being used to host events at church, when there is Places that an event like this can be held. It is a violation and is unconstitutional when there are places that can hold an event like this. There is Lions Club, The community center, city hall and normally these events are held at the police station in the conference room there. This shows preferential treatment to this church and to the Christians in the community this is a form of discrimination to those that are non-christian, it also leads to the question of is this because of those planing to run again this coming election that go to this church and the fact this church holds special Christian political class?
