BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, religious leaders and police officials will get together for a public forum on police-community relations.

Tuesday’s session at Mt. Olive Baptist Church is meant to give residents a chance to be heard. The mayor’s office says feedback from the meeting will be incorporated into upcoming police training programs and reforms.

The forum comes amid a national conversation about racial justice and police use of force following several high-profile incidents.

Among those planning to attend are representatives from the Concerned Clergy of Western New York, Buffalo Police Internal Affairs Division, FBI, Erie County District Attorney’s Office and the Buffalo Commission on Citizens’ Rights and Community Relations.

The session goes from 6-8 p.m.
