Several members , including Georgia’s 9th District Congressman Doug Collins, of the bipartisan Policing Strategies Working Group will be traveling to Detroit, Michigan to meet with local community leaders and law enforcement to discuss police accountability, aggression towards law enforcement, and public safety concerns related to these issues. Members of the working group plan to hold a press conference following their private round-table with community leaders on Tuesday, August 30 beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET.
The press conference will be live streamed on the House Judiciary Committee’s Facebook page.
Members of the round-table include Kenneth E. Grabowski, Legislative Director, Police Officers Association of Michigan, Kary L. Moss, Executive Director, ACLU of Michigan, Kym L. Korthy, Esq., Wayne County Prosecutor, Sheriff Benny Napoleon, Wayne County Sheriff, Chandra McMillion, Founding Member, Advocates and Leaders for Police and Community Trust and Lindsey Mason, Citizen Alliance on Prisons and Public Spending.
The working group, formed last July, consists of Republicans Goodlatte (VA), Collins (GA) and Reichert (WA) while Conyers (MI), Lee (TX), Richmond (LA), Kelly (IL) and Ellison (MN) represent Democrats.
More information on the working group is available in Chairman Goodlatte’s op-ed in The Hill.
