Stratford police officers met with members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People after a sergeant targeted the Black Lives Matter movement on social media.
Police Chief Joe McNeil and Sgt. Jamie Rivera met with local NAACP officials to speak about Rivera's Facebook post.
McNeil says that, "The sentiments expressed by Sgt. Rivera specific to the Black Lives Matter movement do not reflect our thinking at the Stratford Police Department. Being able to listen to one another is always the first step in making progress."
The Greater Bridgeport NAACP President Rev. Stanley Lord says that the meeting was "tough, honest and insightful."
