Beyond the Headlines Wausau

Building Trust: Law Enforcement, the Media, and You - Kickoff Event

May 9, 2018
7:00 pm
FREE

Northcentral Technical College
1000 W Campus Dr
Wausau, WI

This kickoff event brings the national discussion of law enforcement and media coverage home to Wausau. Reports from the police, the news, bystanders, or even our own observations don't always match up. How can we stay informed about what's happening in our neighborhoods? How do we know who is telling the truth? This kickoff will be followed by four more community discussion events in June, September, October and November.
