Louisville In "State Of Emergency"


Louisville Police Department will be in a state of emergency in anticipation of the Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's decision on the Breonna Taylor's case.

Cameron will be announcing whether charges will be laid against Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove for their roles in Taylor's death.

"To ensure we have the appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services and our policing functions, effective immediately the LMPD will operate under the emergency staffing and reporting guidelines as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedures, Emergency Response Plan and collective bargaining agreements until further notice," Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder wrote. "This Special Order will be posted in each division, or unit for a period of ten days."

Requested days off and vacation time are canceled and Sgt. Lamony Washington revealed barriers will be propped up in downtown.

Louisville Police confirmed that six officers were under investigation by the Professional Standards Unit of the department. This investigation is separate from the findings provided to Cameron.
