1/7/2021

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chief John Drake today announced that an After Action Review of the MNPD’s response to bombing suspect Anthony Warner’s Bakertown Road home on August 21, 2019, will be led by five persons, including three from outside the police department.

Deputy Chief Dwayne Greene and attorney/Professional Standards Division head Kathy Morante will be joined in the review by Nashville attorney and former United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee Ed Yarbrough, Community Oversight Board Executive Director Jill Fitcheard, and Metro Council Member Jennifer Gamble, chair of the Public Safety Committee.

“These five persons will meet with the officers involved in the near future, hear the information they had in August 2019, and what they did at the time based on that information,” Chief Drake said. “The review will focus specifically on 2019 to determine whether any gaps existed from which we can learn moving forward. I thank these five persons for taking part in the After Action Review and I look forward to their report.”
