Community Oriented Policing Unit To Help LPD Problem Solve

Louisville's police department plans to beef up its force with some help from people in the community.

As WAVE 3 News reported Thursday at 11 p.m., Louisville Mayor Dave Armstrong signed off on a new program that encourages community oriented policing.

The COPS program is intended to build better relationships between officers and the community.

The group is made up of residents, district leaders, and officers who will act as a problem solving team.
