A Public Servant
All Public Servant positions are created for the benefit of all citizens. These positions come with the power to change a persons life forever. This kind of power should only be held by a servant with a humble heart someone with the highest integrity, honesty, and humility. A servant who is respectful to the people.
Police Accountability starts with Transparency.
A Police Accountability Board is made up of citizens from various backgrounds with legal knowledge. The board members will review police interactions through video to make sure that the citizens have not had their constitutional rights violated. The board members will also investigate complaints and make recommendations for punishment to the police chief and council members. These complaints will be publicly published and the names of offending officers will be public. The goal is to have a safe place to live!
I encourage all police chiefs to cooperate with this board so we can avoid deaths, riots, and lawsuits. The names of towns/cities that join this solution to protect the public will be listed.
Please contact us through the "legal help" tab if you have a complaint or wish to be on the Police Accountability Board.

Roanoke Police Department
Refuses to Release dash cam video's of an arrest of the requester.
They claim they need an opinion from the AG believing they have an "exception" (not to release).
A closed case does not qualify for an exception!
A typical stunt pulled by Police Departments who are trying to cover up their crimes.
