LWV: Community Oversight Board: Policing in a democratic society

Join Kyle Mothershead and Sekou Franklin of the COB Collaboration to learn about the multi-organization advocacy group’s proposal to create an independent citizen oversight board to review law enforcement actions and the internal appeal process. Recent legislation proposed to the Metro City Council calls for a 13-member panel of citizens whose members may be appointed with input from community members. The panel would have the power to review misconduct complaints, have full access to Metro police records, and be granted subpoena-power to call in witnesses and review evidence. Proponents believe a citizens oversight panel is needed due to concerns such as potential racial bias in police operations here in Nashville and nationally.
