Police hold town hall meeting in Charleston suburb

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Charleston police have scheduled a town hall meeting and issued some challenges to city residents who live on Johns and James islands.

The meeting is slated for Thursday evening on James Island, and the idea is to challenge residents to create a better community.

Police are challenging residents to do little things such as pick up litter and pick up after their pets.

But there are also bigger challenges they want people to take up such as reporting suspicious activity, taking time to meet neighbors and taking time to volunteer and get involved in neighborhood activities.
