HAYDEN, Idaho — Kootenai County Sheriff Bob Norris will host a “community conversation” in late August to discuss local and regional issues and receive feedback, as reported by KREM 2 News partner the Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls Press.

The town hall is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Aug. 25 at the Office of Emergency Management in Hayden, 1662 W. Wyoming Ave.

Norris will address multiple topics, a news release said, including the procedures and training used by the Sheriff’s Office when responding to threats, such as active shooters.

He is also expected to discuss the June 11 Pride in the Park Celebration, which received international attention after the mass arrest of 31 men associated with the white nationalist hate group Patriot Front.

Challenges posed by Idaho’s common border with Washington state is also on the agenda.

“Your feedback and participation is vital in the Sheriff’s Office response to these issues in the future,” a news release said. “All Kootenai County citizens are encouraged to attend.”
