Gideon’s Army, a group that reviewed racial disparities in local policing and demanded changes to how traffic stops are conducted, will have a chance to make its case to the Metro Nashville Council. Council members have been considering whether to require police to routinely share data on traffic stops. Gideon’s Army said its presentation will include material from researchers and from black drivers who were interviewed for the study. The council also has invited the police department to present its side of the story, Nashville Public Radio reports.
