Mark G. Rodin: Right time for forum

Regarding the Jan. 13 news article “ Rocky Mount police to host forum on rights”: Kudos to the Rocky Mount police and other law enforcement agencies in Edgecombe and Nash counties for the idea of a forum about residents’ rights during encounters with police.

All city and county law enforcement agencies, especially those in cities and towns with large Latino and African-American populations, should follow this example.
