Americans want more transparent and accountable policing, with officers who work as guardians instead of occupiers in their communities.

That’s the message from DeKalb Public Safety Director Cedric Alexander, who says police should work hard to rebuild trust with residents following high-profile shooting incidents across the nation over the last few years.

Alexander told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that body camera videos should be made available to the public, and information about shootings involving officers should be posted online.
