Dennis Peterson Announces Support for CRB Reform
In the wake of the shooting death of Jonathan Ferrell by CMPD Officer Randall Kerrick, City Council At-Large candidate Dennis Peterson publicly announced his support for reform of the City of Charlotte’s Citizen Review Board process and policy.
“The shooting death of Mr. Ferrell is a horrific incident and my thoughts and prayers are directed to his family. I have the full belief that Chief Monroe, City Manager Carlee, and the District Attorney’s office will handle this case in the most correct and professional manner. However, the people of Charlotte must be secure in their trust and faith of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. I believe that the only way to restore their faith is by strengthening the oversight and review capabilities of our Citizen Review Board”, said Peterson.
He continued, “The need for strengthening trust in government is further highlighted by the recent controversies regarding the National Security Agency, the Internal Revenue Service, and treatment of journalists by both the Department of Justice and the NC General Assembly Police.”
In announcing support of CRB Reform, Peterson has pledged to support changes that are being advocated for by the group CRB Reform Now.
