Nathan G started this petition to Police Chief Dunlavy Newton KS PD and

The greatest changes we can make occur at the local level. Fair and just policing is a crucial goal of every successful community.

Both Newton, KS and North Newton, KS are towns of great diversity. Bethel College and the surrounding area is a temporary home for a considerable number of students of color. We must assure parents that their children will be safe and protected in this community by police that are dedicate to equal treatment.

Additionally, the greater Newton area is a diverse community with a particularly vibrant LatinX/Spanish population. The hard working and respectable people of Newton deserve a police department that communicates their efforts to improve race relations.

This petition stands as the voice of the people who request statements from the Newton and North Newton Police Departments on their reactions to the Black Lives Matter protests and word on how they plan to work towards more harmonious and less biased policing.
