. “Things change, the environment changes, the requirements on law enforcement change, the requirements that the public, the expectations change,” says Randy Jones, the accreditation manager for FMPD. “So, it was a natural evolution we needed to make this available.” The social justice climate and the department’s spotty history sparked the change, Jones tells WINK News
. “The public wants transparency. The public is demanding transparency, and the public should have transparency,” Jones says.
