Metro Council Passes No Confidence Resolution Against LMPD Chief

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Louisville Metro Council puts their issues with the city's top cop in writing.

On a 13-9 vote, the council passed a resolution expressing no confidence in LMPD Chief Steve Conrad in the wake of a record rise in crime.

Councilman David James says the homicide numbers in his district are "unacceptable" while Councilwoman Angela Leet says Conrad hasn't been transparent with them.

Conrad had some supporters both on the council and in the gallery, one of which was Councilwoman Mary Woolridge who says guns and gangs are the problem and Conrad "can only do so much."

Mayor Fischer issued a statement calling the vote a distraction and says Conrad has his full support. In a separate statement, Conrad says he will continue to do what he can to make Louisville a safer city.
