    Associated Press ^ | Aug 27, 2016 1:45 PM EDT
    After threatening to sue, the Chicago Tribune has obtained data from the city’s police department that tracks every time an officer has opened fire in the city over the past six years.

    The largest union representing New York City police officers has awarded its man of the year honor to an outspoken black conservative and supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, known for his criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as President Obama, was named Man of the Year by the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association. Annual honors in the past have often gone to elected leaders or lawmen with New York ties — such as the 2015 award to New York Gov.

    Charlotte, NC — A community and family is mourning the loss of Daniel Kevin Harris, whose life was taken this week by a State Trooper who apparently fears sign language.

For an unknown reason, Harris did not stop and, instead, drove to his home. During the pursuit, both cars became damaged and eventually came to a stop near Harris’ home. “I was here in my driveway and I saw the...

    Growing up, I watched a lot of Westerns. In addition to the cowboy hero, the town sheriff was almost always a model of integrity. He stood for law and order against bank robbers, cattle rustlers and horse thieves all trying to disrupt the peace. A contemporary and real-life version of those fictional characters is Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Clarke has been trying to restore law and order after several nights of rioting following the shooting death of 23-year-old Sylville Smith by a Milwaukee police officer. Smith had a lengthy criminal record, longer than some people's resumes. He...

    Baltimore’s top law enforcement and political leaders on Wednesday vowed a sweeping overhaul of the city Police Department after a searing rebuke of the agency’s practices, which the Justice Department said regularly discriminated against black residents in poor communities. Officials promised improved community relations, a purge of race-based policing and a modernized department that better trains officers and holds them accountable. But they warned that reforming an agency entrenched in a culture of unconstitutional policing would be a slow process and could cost millions of dollars. “Police reform won’t happen overnight or by chance,” Vanita Gupta, principal deputy assistant attorney...

    A US justice department report has accused police in the city of Baltimore of routinely discriminating against black people and using excessive force. An inquiry was ordered after a young black man, Freddie Gray, died in police custody in April of last year, sparking Baltimore's worst riots for decades. The report found African-Americans had been disproportionately targeted. Unjustified strip searches were conducted while in one arrest, a black man's weapon was listed as "his mouth". In recent years, the justice department has conducted similar investigations into the police in Chicago, Cleveland, Albuquerque and Ferguson, Missouri. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake responded...

    Riverside police shake and sway with school children as cameras roll. Their county counterparts, deputies from the bomb squad and coroner’s division, dance while pumping “JoinRSD.org” signs up and down. Back east, Detroit cops prance beneath the fist monument to boxing champion Joe Louis, and Cincinnati officers high-step with NFL players. These videos and dozens of others have been filmed and posted online this year as part of the Running Man Challenge, a cheeky effort that law enforcement officers say is designed to engage the community and show a side of police that the public does not normally see. The...

    A woman is dead after she was accidentally shot by a Florida police officer in a citizen training academy roleplay scenario gone wrong. Mary Knowlton was one of two participants randomly selected from a group of 35 for a shoot-don’t shoot simulation during a two-hour training Tuesday at the Punta Gorda Police Department, Chief Tom Lewis told reporters at a press conference. “During the first scenario, in a horrible accident participant Mary Knowlton was mistakenly struck by a live round,” Lewis said. She was transported to the local hospital where she was pronounced dead. “I am asking that if you...
