Statement from Lynda Roseman, PCAC Chair, 2021-2022:
Following the PCAC Public Hearing last night, members of our community were targeted on social media for expressing viewpoints critical of the Brookline Police Department. The PCAC welcomes all points of view and we condemn the targeting of individuals for their opinions.
