LMPD Traffic Stops Panel Discussion

FEATURING: Steve Conrad, LMPD Chief; Sadiqa Reynolds, LUL President; David James, Metro Council President

TUESDAY JUNE 4TH 2019. 5 – 7 PM
First Floor Gallery Access: 5-6 pm / DISCUSSION Moderated by Rachel Platt: 6-7 pm

Recent traffic stops have come under increased scrutiny after claims that the practice has lead to unequal treatment for minorities. Most recently an 18-year old stopped for making a wide turn was removed from his vehicle, frisked and, handcuffed for a period of time – the video of this traffic stop has been circulated widely. The new policies just announced by LMPD may help move us forward as a community feeling there is one Louisville, and not two.

Panelists include LMPD Police Chief Steve Conrad, Urban League President Sadiqa Reynolds, and Metro Council President David James.

Invited Guests: Tae-Ahn Lea and his mother, Tija Jackson
