TUCKER, Ga. (AP) - A DeKalb County public safety official gave expert witness testimony to a congressional committee on Capitol Hill discussing ways to improve police and community relations.

Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Public Safety Cedric Alexander was one of six panelists who testified Tuesday before a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Alexander is also the president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://bit.ly/1wbgKW6 ) Alexander said it may be time for the federal government and local communities to re-examine police tactics and the grand jury process.

In a release, Alexander said he was honored to testify and discuss ways to build understanding between law enforcement and the communities they’re expected to serve.
