CRB Members Say Scheduling Meetings with Chief Brackney Proves Difficult
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville's Police Civilian Review Board is working to become a more effective oversight board, but members say it's running into some complications.
The CRB is working to set up a public meeting with Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney to get feedback on its "memorandum of understanding."
But some board members say meetings with the chief are proving to be extremely difficult to schedule.
"Our chief of police, she's not for this CRB,” Katrina Turner, a member of the CRB, said. “I can tell you that now. And if she's not for this, how far are we going to get?”
Chief Brackney met with the board just last month, and she says she wants to be upfront with those tasked with the oversight of her department.
The board's next meeting is set for May 14.
