SHARE Durbin hearing: Chicago Police Deputy Supt. Wysinger to testify

WASHINGTON — Chicago Police Department First Deputy Superintendent, Alfonza Wysinger is among those testifying at a Tuesday hearing chaired by Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. to “to examine state and local law enforcement efforts to develop procedures and training for law enforcement officers who have increasingly become the first responders for in-crisis individuals with mental illness or disabilities.”

The hearing is titled “Law Enforcement Responses to Disabled Americans: Promising Approaches for Protecting Public Safety” and comes, according to Durbin’s office, in the wake of the death of Ethan Saylor, “a 26-year old man with Down Syndrome who was killed last year by three off-duty officers at a movie theater in Maryland.”
