Bill proposes change in the way police are promoted

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

How do promotions work where you work? Are they awarded based on merit, seniority or something else? For many police and firefighters, it's seniority but that may change. How do you feel? What is the right way to get promoted? Is there a "right" way for all situations? With public education getting a lot of attention lately, will the new truancy center set to open in August in BR work as hoped? Do you feel that's one of the fixes the city needs? Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
