With protests around the country bringing a light to the treatment of African Americans by law enforcements, Cape Girardeau has seen protests of its own.
Sgt. Joey Hann of the Cape Girardeau Police Department spoke to KRCU about community policing.
He says that the police department is trained in cultural diversity, going “above and beyond our mandatory amount of training.”
He says during this time in which anti-racism demonstrations are taking place, law enforcement has taken action to help prevent conflict.
