citizens advisory panel

City of Pensacola

More citizen input for the police department and monitoring coronavirus – two of the main items on Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson’s plate during his weekly news conference on Monday.

The mayor pointed to recent upticks in the number of cases and testing percentages. But he adds they’re still under the April and May figures.

The shooting death of Tymar Crawford in July continues to loom over City Hall, and is expected to do that into the near future at least.

Crawford, 28, was shot five times by Pensacola police detective Daniel Siemen following a slow-speed chase and confrontation near downtown. A grand jury last month declined to file criminal charges.
