A wave of police shootings in recent years has left authorities in Charlotte and across the nation searching for ways to rebuild trust. Speakers at a forum uptown Tuesday organized by The Atlantic magazine focused on the city's history of racism and segregation as well as a criminal justice system that they say treats people of color and those with lower incomes unfairly.

CMPD and the City of Charlotte say they're studying a consultant's recommendations for changes in police training, transparency and other policies. Those came in a report from The Police Foundation of Washington, D.C., hired by the city after demonstrations following the fatal police shooting of a black man last year.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is standing by its internal investigation that found last year's shooting of Keith Lamont Scott was justified. That comes a day after the city's Citizen Review Board found the department may have been wrong.

The family of Keith Lamont Scott is appealing a CMPD evaluation that found Officer Brentley Vinson was justified in last September's fatal shooting and will not face internal discipline.

An attorney for the Scott family is asking the Citizens Review Board to review the decision, saying the fatal shooting was not justified and did not conform with CMPD's policies and procedures.

A team of outside reviewers is in Charlotte this week to begin examining procedures and community relations at Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. The Police Foundation's first public meeting Wednesday night was billed as a "listening session," but there were lots of questions, too.

The police killing of Keith Scott last September brought several nights of sometimes violent demonstrations uptown. So Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police hired a consultant to examine their operations and community relations. This week, reviewers from The Police Foundation of Washington, DC, make their first visit, with a public meeting Wednesday night.
