BTH: Memphis City Council on Police Policy

The Memphis City Council is locked in a debate about whether to change residency requirements for new hires at the Memphis Police Department. The Council voted earlier this month to remove the issue from the November ballot, which would have let voters decide. Mayor Jim Stricklandvetoed the move but was quickly overruled.  

Council members Michalyn Easter-Thomas and Chase Carlisle  join this week’s WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines with host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries to weigh in on the issue. They also dig into questions about whether Memphis needs more police officers.
