Police Chief Longo on the Recent Wheelchair Tickets

Police Chief Tim Longo joins Coy Barefoot on WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” to talk for the first time about the incident where a wheelchair-bound man was ticketed after being struck by a Albemarle County police cruiser. While he could not talk about the particulars of either that case, or the second case which occurred earlier this month, Longo was able to talk about department policy.

“These decisions as to whether charge or not charge are made in the field, made in real time by the person who is tasked with the responsibility of investigating the accident,” Longo said.
