Dr. Ricky Jones was nominated to the Citizens Commission on Police Accountability Board.
But FOP President Dave Mutchler has been outspoken against Jones -- claiming the UofL Pan-African Studies Chair has an anti-police bias.
In an impassioned plea Monday, Jones told committee members that he's not opposed to all law enforcement.
"I do not wish to live in a society without police," he said. "But I also do not wish to live in a society where police cannot be questioned."
Jones' appointment was unanimously approved by the committee.
The full council will vote next week.
