The Grand Rapids Police Department hopes to improve communication and problem solving with residents of the western Michigan city.

Community members are invited to two trust-building sessions scheduled June 27 at Grand Rapids Community College.

The police department says each interactive session focuses on objectives instead of suspicion about others' intentions.

Chief David Rahinsky says there are local and national conversations about "trust between the community and law enforcement." He adds "communication, respect and commitment" are the keys to a strong relationship between them.
