CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: After the May death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, several Haverhill organizations came together with a mission: Spread peace and foster partnerships within the city.
For Carol Ireland and others, that started with the Haverhill Police Department.
Ireland was among those encouraging the most recent wave of Police-Youth Dialogues, a program she first helped with in Haverhill a decade ago.
Over the course of four "dialogue sessions,'' young people from Haverhill High School and two social organizations — the POSE (Power of Self Education) and Leaving the Streets Ministries groups — have gathered to take part in conversations with members of the Haverhill Police Department.
A group of young people recently joined police officers Justin Graham, Katelyn Tully and Eric MacKinnon to rent kayaks from Plum Island Kayaks for a team building session on the Merrimack River.
Police Capt. Robert Pistone, said the afternoon kayaking session was a way officers could get to know young people in the community and avoid an "us versus them" sentiment. 8/31/2020
