One of the first questions fielded Tuesday night by Banning Police Officers Association members came from resident Larry Law, who asked about Banning High students' safety at the railroad crossing on South San Gorgonio Avenue.

Law, 51, who was born and raised in Banning, also asked about unsolved homicides in the city of Banning.

Banning police Cpl. Joe Feola and Cpl. Brandon Smith were among police union members who hosted the public meeting Tuesday Jan. 7 at Russo's Italian Kitchen.

The BPOA is the union for all 24 sworn non-administration personnel who work for the Banning Police Department, said Smith, an elected representative of the Banning Police Officers Association.
