It had the feel of a political debate, but the last person standing come November will be selected, not elected.
The first public forum showcasing the three finalists for chief of police took place Tuesday night at Central High School.
Acting Chief Rebeca Garcia, Captain Lonnie Blackwell and retired Captain Roderick Porter fielded questions about policing issues via the public and three moderators: Frank Delgado from WPKN, Deborah Greenwood from Center for Family Justice and Tiheba Bain, founder of Women Against Mass Incarceration.
The forum was streamed live on the city’s Facebook page. See video above.
