Memphis still has 'issues'

Some additional information on HB0011 from the Memphis Flyer.

For most of this year, proposals to relax residency restrictions on Memphis police — now mandating residence in Shelby County — have resulted in a series of 7-6 votes against, with blacks uniformly opposing the change and whites favoring it.

*HB0011 by *Kelsey.

Law Enforcement - As introduced, provides that there is no residency requirement to be a police officer in a law enforcement agency employing more than 2,000 officers and any violation results in the agency's loss of revenue derived from forfeitures, confiscations and seizures. - Amends TCA Title 38, Chapter 8, Part 1.
