COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Sam DuBose will be laid to rest on Tuesday, but the conversation over community/police relations will continue throughout the Tri-State.
 
DuBose was the man shot and killed during a traffic stop involving a University of Cincinnati Police officer last week in Mt. Auburn.
 
In the days since, DuBose’s family, friends and other community members have voiced frustration over what they call a lack of transparency from investigators and the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.
 
Meanwhile, in Colerain Township, first responders are working to take a proactive approach.
 
Tuesday night, the Public Safety Department will hold its first conversation between police, paramedics and community members regarding race relations.
 
Daniel Meloy, Colerain Township Director of Public Safety, says it’s important dialogue that needs to happen. He said they have been working to organize the discussion for several months and the goal is to engage Colerain’s African American community, which makes up about 16 percent of the community.
 
The conversation is going to be held 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Colerain Township Community and Senior Center at 4300 Springdale Rd.
