BTH: Memphis Mayor on Reimagining Policing, COVID-19, More

The Black Lives Matter movement and other protests have caused many cities and states to reevaluate how police departments operate. Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland has implemented a three-phase program that aims to “reimagine policing.”  


Strickland joins host Eric Barnes and The Daily Memphian’s Bill Dries on this week's WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines to discuss proposed policy changes at the Memphis Police Department.


In addition, the mayor discusses the city's continued COVID-19 response, and the recent uptick in positive cases in Memphis.
