South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg updated the city’s Common Council Monday night on his progress in addressing the police shooting of Eric Logan on June 16. He announced no specific plans, but gave a general preview of things to come.
Buttigieg told the Common Council he was considering a thorough review of the police department before the end of his term. He said he was looking into adding staff to the Board of Public Safety, implementing anti-violence community programs, and investing in technology that would activate body cameras when a weapon is removed from the holster. He acknowledged that many of these ideas would require funding from the city’s budget.
