Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox had a conversation with the 953 Bear Steve Shannon Morning Show. The mayor will join the police chief & sheriff today at 1:30 via Zoom & Facebook Live for BRIDGING THE GAP: Community Policing. A frank and honest conversation about race relations & bridging the gap between the community and the police.

We asked the mayor if the Tuscaloosa Police Department used the controversial choke hold used in Minneapolis. Some police departments have banned use of this technique.

Mayor Maddox also told us not to become complacent about Corona distancing, hand washing, and wearing masks.

The mayor also shared how he copes with the stressful times we are living in.
