Louisville citizens are calling for a quicker implementation of body cameras on their local police force.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer held a press conference at Louisville Metro Hall, and stated that the day’s violence “did not appear to be random.” He enlisted the assistance of the entire community to help the police with investigating this series of crimes, and requested anyone with information concerning the shootings to call the LMPD tip line, at 574-LMPD.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity to lead the Louisville Metro Police Department. It is an incredible organization filled with men and women who are willing to do what it takes to make our community safer. I am truly honored to have the opportunity to work with them again.”
Steve Conrad and Cindy Shain designed a new form of crowd control for Louisville that was so clever and effective that it earned kudos from a panel of federal judges.
"We do have in our race the quality of leadership, whereby God blessed us to have the first black president of the U.S., with a white momma, which used to be if you looked at a white woman you'd be hung. So we made some progress, and we was hoping we could continue to make that kind of progress."
Mayor Fischer stressed the value of Conrad’s experience in Louisville, noting that “Steve knows how to pronounce ‘Dumesnil.’” He indicated that Conrad will assume his new duties on March 19, and that interim Police Chief Ishmon Burkes will then move over into the Mayor’s Office to serve as Chief Administrative Office, replacing William Summers, who is retiring.
