The talk is hosted by Communities 4 Action, the Human Services Council, the Courage to Speak Foundation and the Regional Youth Adult Social Action Partnership. It is open to the public and will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. in the Community Room of Norwalk City Hall.

Butka has more than 46 years of law enforcement experience in the management and performance of investigations.
