- On ‘Wake Up Memphis,’ Memphis Councilman Frank Colvett Jr. tells Robyn Walensky what the council’s decision on voters not being able to vote for police officers to live outside of the city means for Memphians. “It means that crime will go up potentially,” Colvett says, “it means that we’re going to have a harder and harder time recruiting police officers,it means that there were 24 children killed already killed this year, 21 of them African American. What are those numbers going to be like in a year?”
