Carbondale Police Department holds open house for community
CARBONDALE, Ill (KBSI) – Carbondale residents were given a chance to visit the Carbondale Police Department for their first-ever open house.
It was an opportunity for members of the community to meet officers, ask questions, and see what some of the departments do on a daily basis.
Carbondale Police Chief Stan Reno said it was one of his initiatives to be transparent.
“So, it’s just an effort that, you know, one of my initiatives has been transparency of the Police Department, so that people know exactly what we do and why we do it. It’s just a really another Step 2, [to] give people a chance to come in and learn more about us,” said Reno.
