Public Safety Committee to learn more about new LMPD Traffic Stop Policy

June 4, 2019

Louisville – The Public Safety Committee of the Louisville Metro Council will have a special discussion on the recently announced Traffic Stop Policy for Louisville Metro Police initiated by Chief Steve Conrad when it meets on Wednesday, June 5th.

“This meeting will be a follow-up to the joint meeting in April where concerns were raised by Council members over the stop in 2018 of a 17 year old in West Louisville,” says Councilwoman Jessica Green (D-1), who chairs the Committee. “This will be an opportunity for the Committee to get a better understanding of the policy and how it is being implemented out on the streets by officers.”

Councilwoman Green has invited Chief Conrad to speak about the policy to the Committee.

Also, on the agenda is Ordinance O-168-19 that seeks to make marijuana possession the lowest law enforcement priority for Louisville Metro Police Department.

The Public Safety Committee will meet at 3:30pm in Council Chambers, Historic City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street.

The meeting will be carried live on Metro TV, Spectrum Cable Channel 184 or on UVERSE at Channel 99.

All meetings of the Metro Council are streamed live. Go to the Metro Council Home page at www.Louisvilleky.gov/metrocouncil  and click on the Metro Council Agendas link.
