It comes one week after more than two dozen people stepped up to the mic to voice their concerns about local law enforcement.

Thursday, the Huntsville police chief is going to give his perspective of all the protests from May 30 to June 5.

Calvert was at the front of several protests. And stood in front of the council to express his concerns last week.

“For me personally the issues that we are facing right now I’ve faced all my life. My community has faced all of our life. The only difference is now we have more attention and more people willing to help us fight. And as the saying goes, lots of hands make for light work,” Calvert said.

“They represent the city as a whole and they will do their job in an independent open manner and they will report their findings to the public. I think that’s a good process and I think that’s what we need for our citizens right now,” Kling said.

Calvert says if appointed Thursday he is ready to listen, learn and get to work “For me personally it is all about my city, it is all about my community.”
