Broomfield Police Department will host a community meeting on Wednesday, May 28, 2008, at 1:00 p.m. at the Broomfield Municipal Library auditorium, 3 Community Park Road. The purpose of this meeting is to open a dialogue with individuals and/or organizations that intend to demonstrate at the Republican State Convention, being held on May 31, 2008, at the Broomfield Event Center.There hasn't been much stirring from the usual gang of protestors, but Broomfield's proximity to Boulder certainly does not preclude another round of moonbattery outside the GOP state convention.
Broomfield Police Department is aware, that at events such as this, organizations plan demonstrations to convey a message to attendees. Broomfield Police Department is committed to protecting the rights of those demonstrating, as well as the rights of those attending the Convention. This meeting will discuss the types of activities that are protected by law, as well as what is considered unlawful conduct.
It is the desire of the Broomfield Police Department to communicate and collaborate with all interested parties to ensure the safety and protection of all.
