The Chair of the Shelby County Law Enforcement Task Force (County Commissioner MIke Carpenter) recently submitted a proposal to the Committee that basically would put law enforcement County-wide under the authority of the Memphis Mayor.
The latest proposal is posted on the City of Lakeland web page (http://www.lakelandtn.gov/)
The next Law Enforcement Task Force meeting is at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at the Shelby County Courthouse. Additional information is at the Shelby County web page at http://www.shelbycountytn.gov/.
This proposal has not been reviewed by Committee members yet and it is my understanding that the proposal would require an amendment to the Shelby County Charter before any changes could actually be made.
