Chris Thieneman has filed paperwork to start the process of running for mayor as an independent, and will follow through on that if Jefferson County Attorney Mike O'Connell wins his primary tomorrow and Mayor Fischer does not fire LMPD Chief Steve Conrad -- who he accuses of covering up the Youth Explorer scandal.
U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman announced that a federal grand jury returned indictments on 23 individuals for felony firearms violations this week, continuing a joint partnership of local and federal officials to incarcerate the most violent repeat offenders in Louisville.
The public safety subcommittee of SCALA focused on addressing the rise in homicides includes three members of the Fischer administration and a former deputy police chief, though LMPD says that none of its current employees have been asked to participate with the group yet.
Louisville applied for a new pilot program with the FAA to allow it to fly automated drones equipped with cameras to locations where a gunshot is detected by LMPD's new ShotSpotter technology -- which would make it the first city in the country to implement such a strategy.
