Mayor Barrett says he is working with city leaders and talked to Acting Police Chief Jeffrey Norman Monday night. “I understand and agree with concern we should have more police and we are working to do that,” Mayor Barrett said. The mayor also addressed reports that police were told to “not be heavy-handed” and concerns that it’s impacting officers’ ability to police effectively. “I want our police to be even-handed,” Mayor Barrett said. “I want them to be effective and I want them to be fair. I don’t want them to be heavy-handed and cause problems, creating backlash.”
