Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris has scheduled his next "Town Hall Meeting" for Thursday, March 1 in Fort Walton Beach. The session will begin at 7:00 o'clock that evening at the Fort Walton Beach High School Cafeteria, 400 Hollywood Boulevard SW.

The informal meeting is open to the public. Any citizen who wishes to meet Sheriff Charlie Morris and members of his staff is urged to attend. Sheriff Morris holds Town Hall Meetings several times each year in order to gather input from citizens and address any concerns voiced. The sessions are loosely-structured and informal, with most of the time devoted to a question-and-answer period.

Sheriff Morris initiated the practice of holding regular public meetings shortly after he took office in January, 1997. The meetings are held in various locations throughout Okaloosa County, for the maximum convenience of the greatest number of citizens.
