DeKalb Commissioner Ted Terry Discusses Community Policing, Expanding Mental Health Resources

Originally published by WABE

DeKalb County Super District 6 Commissioner Ted Terry says following the officer-involved shooting of Matthew Zadok Williams, his office was inundated with calls, social media posts and messages.

“We heard outrage, concern and the number one thing that I immediately thought of is how do we make sure this never happens again,” explained Commissioner Terry on Tuesday’s edition of “Closer Look.”

Terry talked with show host Rose Scott about a response letter that he wrote to John Jackson, the chairman of the DeKalb County Democratic Committee about several proposed initiatives aimed at improving community policing and expanding mental health resources countywide.
