Del. Governor 'Open' to Policing Reforms, No Decision Yet

Posted:
 
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell is open to reforms to policing across Delaware following police-involved killings in Missouri and New York City, according to a spokesperson for the governor.
 
Leaders of Delaware's NAACP recently met with the Democratic governor and asked him to take steps to improve the relationship between police and black communities.

NAACP officials asked the governor to create and fund liaisons to black communities who would report directly to law enforcement leaders.
 
Markell's spokesperson, Kelly Bachman, said the governor has not made a decision on the request or other proposals, but he "remains open to ongoing discussions" on strengthening relations between police and the community.
 
The NAACP also asked Markell to push for a civilian advisory panel to review police-involved shootings.
