Police review board announcement tonight

Citizen’s Awareness Asheville, an activist group pushing for reform in local law enforcement, will hold a press conference at 7 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 14, to announce the formation of a police-review board and Copwatch program. The event will be held in City/County Plaza — not at Eaties’ Cereal Bar, as was previously reported.

More information about Citizens’ Awareness Asheville and the push for a police review board, as well as the controversy surrounding this issue, can be found here.
