Negotiations between Nashville Police and the Metro Community Oversight Board have stalled

Oct 28, 2019

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (OSBORNE) -- Nashville’s Community Oversight Board and Metro Police remain at an impasse nearly one year after voters strongly approved community oversight.

An email exchange this past week between Chief Steve Anderson and Board Director Will Weeden makes clear the two organizations have made no progress on a memorandum outlining how they will interact.

Anderson complains the memorandum as currently written would require more than 90 changes to the Metro Police policy manual. Weeden counters the Chief repeatedly declined invitations to help write the memorandum.

WTVF-TV says the board is now asking new Mayor John Cooper to intervene.
