The LMPD also restricts the passage of vehicles from Market Street to Broadway and from Second Street to Roy Wilkins Avenue. Allowing only people who live or work in the area to enter. The department’s request for parking within the perimeter and access to the parking lot will also be restricted. And the department requires anyone currently parked in the area to move their cars as soon as possible.

Police officers have declared a state of emergency in Louisville
Police officers have declared a state of emergency in Louisville, Kentucky, and are preparing to decide on the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor.
This decision can make at any time-we understand that six officers are under disciplinary investigation.
Federal buildings and downtown commercials have already appeared. The news comes from the attorney general of Kentucky, who will determine whether to initiate criminal proceedings against the officer involved in Taylor’s death.
The 26-year-old passed away in March when the police carried out a drug attack at her home in Louisville. They used a warrant of “no blasting” to break in and beat Taylor 8 times. No drugs were found.
“This is not a woman who is willing to sacrifice her life, family morals, and values to sell drugs on the street,” said Bronana’s Aunt Bonika Austin. Last week, New York City reached a $12 million settlement with Taylor’s family, involving an improper death lawsuit. The solution also includes a police reform checklist.
