A Charlottesville landlord has urged City Councilors to investigate the police department. Bobby Banks says a large group of officers confronted people in his rental units last November on Hartman’s Mill Road. Banks says his tenants were rousted out of their homes. Police Chief Tim Longo also spoke to the councilors on Monday night. Longo says there were no arrests following a November 9-1-1 call about activities on Hartman’s Mill Road. He says there was an administrative investigation that was completed in March.  Longo (pictured) also told the council about his department’s use of community policing. He says many of his officers work with young people at the Boys and Girls Club. Several councilors have commended Longo for his department’s efforts.
