City Council resolution calls for audit of Memphis Police Department

In response to the police beating of transgender detainee Duanna Johnson, the Public Safety & Homeland Security Committee of the Memphis City Council approved a resolution calling for an investigation by the Internal Audit Department. The audit will review Memphis Police Department policies, procedures and the citizen complaint process.

The full council will likely vote on the resolution at its August 19 meeting. See WMCTV5 for more details.
