BPD Chief On Possible Citizens Review Board: No Cops? No Felons
Bloomington Police Chief Brendan Heffner doesn't think a civilian police oversight board is necessary, but if the Bloomington City Council creates it he will respect that decision. The Pantagraph reports he is against having convicted felons serve on the board. Five aldermen have asked that a scheduled Monday night vote on the issue be delayed, They want Heffner to provide more information about how the police department currently handles citizen complaints about police and efforts to build better relationships between the community and the department.
