Since George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis two years ago, La Crosse County has been among the local governments weighing the idea of a board to study police activity.
The county board will be asked Thursday night to approve a list of 18 people who could decide whether such a permanent committee is needed.
County board chair Monica Kruse says names could be removed from the list at this meeting, but no new names could be added immediately. They would have to go through a review process.
The county board voted in November to form a panel that would consider the need for a full-time group to monitor local policing activities. Kruse says the plan is to vote on all 18 names at once.
