Community conversation on policing in Vienna and use of force

Lynne Coan | Adam Kincaid Around Town

Vienna Town Manager Mercury Payton will lead a community conversation on policing in Vienna, use of force, and finding a path forward at his monthly On Deck with Mercury event from 6-8 pm Tuesday, August 11, in the Vienna Community Center gymnasium. Among Payton’s guests will be Police Chief Jim Morris.

Because space in the community center gym is limited to about 70 people due to physicaldistancing requirements, registration for this event is required and open to Town of Vienna residents only. Registration is available via Should space remain available the evening of the event, Town residents who have not registered will be seated first and then people who live outside of Town. The event also will be streamed live on YouTube.

On Deck with Mercury is a casual, monthly community forum hosted by Payton. The program provides an opportunity for Town residents to learn about recent projects and accomplishments of the Town, receive a preview of upcoming initiatives, and ask questions and have an open discussion.
