At the recent Citizens’ Police Advisory Committee meeting, Deputy Chief Kevin Christman invited the members of the CPAC committee to participate in a ride-along, where they would ride with an officer in his cruiser during a shift to get perspective on their daily experience on patrol. Two members of the committee, Haley Morrissette and Jonathan Green, declined the offer. Morrissette said she will not get in a police car, but asked if she could spend time with the Professional Standards Lieutenant, while Green said that he has PTSD from prior police-related experiences.
NOTE: During the recording, Andrew originally identified Green as fellow committee member, Kyle Cole. Mayor Grover Robinson later corrected Andrew, saying Cole was not in-attendance of the meeting.
