CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Councilman Chris Seelbach is launching a public safety listening tour.

The tour includes open office hours at six different neighborhood locations across Cincinnati to meet with residents and discuss public safety concerns and priorities. He will also tour all five police district headquarters and five firehouses around the city to gain a stronger understanding of the challenges each district faces.

"As we approach our budget process and continue to strive to make Cincinnati a safe place for all people to live, work and raise a family, it's important to have a very clear understanding of the safety concerns and priorities of the residents of Cincinnati. That's what this listening tour is setting out to accomplish," said Seelbach; "I look forward to discussing any issue relating to public safety with our police officers, firefighters and with concerned residents where they feel most comfortable, not at City Hall, but in their own neighborhoods."

Listening Tour Dates & Locations:

  • Tuesday, September 11, 5:30-6:30PM – Refuge Coffee Bar, 5010 Glenway Ave., West Price Hill
  • Wednesday, September 12, 8-9AM – Coffee Emporium, 110 E. Central Parkway, Downtown
  • Wednesday, September 12, 4:30-5:30PM – College Hill Coffee Emporium Co., 6128 Hamilton Ave, College Hill
  • Thursday, September 13, 8-9AM – Parkside Café, 1024 E. McMillan Street, Walnut Hills
  • Friday, September 14, 8-9AM – Coffee Emporium, 3316 Erie Ave, Hyde Park
  • Friday, September 14, 2:30-3:30PM – Sugar N' Spice, 4381 Reading Road, Paddock Hills/North Avondale

"Usually City Hall is not the most convenient place for most people so we wanted to make sure that we get out of City Hall and into the neighborhoods," said Seelbach on Tuesday.

Young people attended the meeting to express their concerns. "Vandalism and people being jumped," said Renee Harbin. "It's a very big problem with the teenagers in this area."

Many attendees said they feel as though Seelbach listened and will take their ideas into consideration.

"Absolutely we're going to continue to do this. I mean, I think we saw tonight that it was a success and as long as there's people wanting to come and wanting us to help, we're going to continue doing it," said Seelbach.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
