BCPD Adds Burmese Employees For Community Engagement

BCPD BadgeThe Battle Creek Police Department now has two new Burmese American employees, as they attempt to reach out to that growing community.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that in September, the BCPD added a community engagement coordinator as well as a cadet in their police training program. They say the goal of these employees is to help engage the growing Burmese community in Battle Creek, and help to foster a healthy relationship between the police department and community members.

The relationship between the Burmese community and the police was put in a spotlight this spring, when the BCPD reported that they had only just learned of a missing person case more than 10 years after the fact. Lian Kulh Thawng had last been seen by family members at the Intermodal Transportation Center in Battle Creek in 2006.

He was only reported missing while police were investigating a completely different matter this year.

Next: CEO Of Kellogg's Resigns

BONUS: BCPD Chief Jim Blocker And Jeannie Goodrich
