The Hard Part- HPCAC Follow Up, w/ Chair Jonathan Rossow
After an extensive review of the events that transpired after a clash in 2020 with local law enforcement and citizens in downtown Huntsville, the Huntsville Police Citizens Advisory Council has made notable changes to many facets of its operations. These changes were made based on suggestions from attorneys at Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC and from the public who submitted various forms of evidence from the protests, as well as expressing grievances, support and suggestions for changes to how our local law enforcement operates. City Councilperson Frances Akridge appointed Jonathan Rossow in 2020, who is now serving as the Chair of HPCAC. Katy Ganaway talks with Jonathan in this new installment in our series, "The Hard Part."
This is the long version of a conversation which aired on Morning Edition, All Things Considered and The Public Radio Hour (3/3/2022.)
Note-- This conversation was recorded 1/27/2022. Huntsville Police Chief Mark McMurray officially retired from HPD 3/1/2022.
