Independent Group Releases Gainesville Police Review Findings
On Wednesday, we first told you about a reorganization that is soon to take place at the Gainesville Police Department.
The National Association of Black Law Enforcement, or NOBLE, was assigned to review the department's practices, and today they made their findings public.
Some of the recommendations which would require additional funding include establishing an internal affairs unit headed by the police chief, organizing a disciplinary plan for all staff, creating psychological screenings for new employees and increasing community involvement.
NOBLE plans to make small changes to their recommendations and give Chief Jones their final draft on Monday.
Chief Jones will meet with his staff in January to see how they can improve its policies and its image.
Jones tells TV20 he plans to implement a three-year strategic plan based on the final recommendations.
