Dept. of Public Safety Commissioner Sean Tindell discusses officer-involved shootings
According to the Department of Public Safety, there have been a total of 26 officer-involved shootings in Mississippi this year.
The most recent shooting claimed the life of a female officer in Greenville.
Here on the Coast, there’s been a lot of attention surrounding last week’s officer-involved shooting in Gulfport in which a teen was killed.
Each of these shootings has to be investigated by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation which falls under the Department of Public Safety.
Public Safety Commissioner Sean Tindell is in studio with more on that process.
