Police oversight in Canton

The Stark County NAACP and the Greater Stark County Urban League are working together to establish an independent commission that would provide oversight of the Canton Police Department. This follows 2 recent controversies involving Canton Police. The April case of Frank Tyson, who died while being arrested after telling officers he couldn’t breathe and last month’s case of a police officer deploying his police dog on a man who was already on the ground being arrested.
