The city of Anniston takes another step forward in the relationship between law enforcement and the communities it protects. Last month, Anniston City Manager Brian Johnson recommended a citizen’s advisory council. And, tonight, the citizen’s advisory council had its first meeting. Anniston Police Department Chief Shane Denham says the next meeting is scheduled for October 21st at the Solohub Justice Center. The next step for the council is to elect a Chairman, Vice chairman, and Secretary. The council is looking to participate in ride-alongs with the Anniston Police Department. It will work with the police department to maintain better practices and improve current practices of the police department.
