HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Doug Glanville, a former Major League Baseball player and an ESPN baseball analyst, will serve on the Connecticut commission responsible for enforcing professional standards for certifying police officers.

Glanville will serve as one of 18 volunteer appointees to the Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training Council or POST. Five of the appointments must be members of the general public.

In appointing Glanville, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy cited how he signed legislation last year that was inspired by the Hartford resident. The new law bars officers from crossing a municipal border to investigation violations of municipal infractions.

Glanville, who is black, has spoken and written about how being questioned by a West Hartford officer while shoveling snow in his own driveway and whether he was violating a West Hartford ordinance.
