UCF College Republicans to host interactive conversation with UCFPD

The College Republicans at UCF will host an interactive conversation with UCFPD on Thursday to discuss current events and views on national events, and all UCF students are invited.

“This will be our first in person event of the semester and we chose to do this event in person because we think all good conversations begin with a dialogue, face to face,” UCF College Republicans Chairman Didi Malka said.

Students must RSVP on Knight Connect to attend in person due to COVID-19 capacity limitations. The event will also be live-streamed on the UCF College Republicans Facebook page

The in-person component will be held in the Pegasus Ballroom in the Student Union on Thursday at 5 p.m.

The event will consist of a panel of five UCFPD officers and employees, as well as a moderator from College Republicans. The moderator will ask a series of questions, and then there will be a Q&A with students in the room and on Facebook live, Malka said. 

Malka said the College Republicans want to give UCF students the opportunity to hear directly from UCFPD to help spark a well-needed dialogue.

“There have been very few attempts from student organizations to give the police an opportunity to give their thoughts and opinions, and that is our main goal,” Malka said. “ We want to give UCFPD the opportunity to speak directly to students about their job and the risks involved. In simple terms, we want to hear their side of the story.”
