A Davidson County grand jury’s end-of-term report calls for residents to have more authority in investigating police who use deadly force against civilians, the Tennessean reports. Filed last week, the report expresses support for police body cameras, and concern about a deadly police shooting in February. "While we favor the current (agreement) between MNPD and the TBI, we would prefer a binding legal agreement that requires the TBI and a panel of citizens (possibly the grand jury) to investigate police use of force resulting in death," the report reads.
