Police chief to shake up patrol officers' shifts

Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad said he intends to change the work shifts of hundreds of patrol officers by the end of the summer, a move he says would increase the number of patrol officers working on any given shift.

He called the shift a "very, very significant" change, one that will be negotiated between LMPD command staff and the River City Fraternal Order of Police, which represents about 1,200 LMPD members.

LMPD officers under investigation can get fresh start with resignation

In December 2011, the Louisville Metro Police Department began investigating one of its own - Lt. Lynn Hunt - for falsifying her time sheet, lying about when she was at work and other allegations.

But the investigation went away when Hunt retired from the force nearly a year later. Hunt was then hired as a detective by the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department - where she recently led the high-profile Stanley Dishon murder investigation.

An attorney for District Court Judge Stephanie Burke on Tuesday criticized the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, saying the department hasn't been transparent in its response to his client's repeated allegations of misconduct by a top deputy.

In an interview, Thomas E. Clay said that statements made in a WDRB News story Monday by Lt. Col Carl Yates, a spokesman for the department, "which indicate that the sheriff and members of his command staff had no knowledge of this matter are not accurate."

You've probably seen the picture: a Louisville mother fights her way across the finish line this weekend at the Rodes City Run 10K, hand-in-hand with her son and an officer.

On Monday, WDRB News anchor Gilbert Corsey spoke with that mother -- Asia Ford.

"Right in between mile four and five, I started feeling my body shutting down," Ford said. "So I told my son we'd get to mile five and we were going to stop, and he asked me why I was crying."
