Ask The Mayor: Lafayette's Tony Roswarski On Defunding The Police And Community Outreach


This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: there’s debate across the country about different reforms for law enforcement – including the idea of “defunding the police”. What does that entail, and what would some of those concepts look like in Lafayette?  What would work – and what wouldn’t? What are the city, and the police department, already implementing in terms of best practices?

In our talk with Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski, we’ll discuss recent protests that have unfolded in Greater Lafayette, how residents have responded, and how the city and community are communicating right now about what the future could hold.
