The president of the newly formed Lincoln Community Development Corporation is calling for Lake Wales police to start wearing body cameras to document interactions with suspects and the general public.

Attorney Sara Jones said she also would like to see police get more training and make a stronger commitment to community policing to enhance relationships with citizens, especially in the northwest community.

To discuss Jones' requests, city commissioners will hold a workshop starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30 at the James P. Austin Community Center, 315 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
