Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron came to northern Kentucky this week to attend the Covington Police Memorial Service, where he read the names of officers who lost their lives on duty.
His visit also included a stop at the Boone County’s sheriff’s office, where he met with stakeholders from northern Kentucky to discuss CVG and the Amazon hub, which is currently under construction.
“One of the things we’ve been trying to do since we took office is to get out and have conversations with the community,” said Cameron. “People in Northern Kentucky think that those in Frankfurt and other parts of the state don’t pay them much attention, so it’s nice to come here and catch up on what’s going on.”
Cameron also mentioned that he focused on working with a coalition of 44 attorneys general across the country and urged Facebook not to advance a plan to create an Instagram-style app for children under the age of 13.
“We have a responsibility to protect our youngest citizens, and a version of Instagram specifically aimed at children under the age of 13 poses significant health and safety risks for children in Kentucky,” Cameron said in a statement released by his office.
In addition to the coalition, the attorney general said his office was working on plans to bring funds from the national opioid lawsuit to Kentucky.
When asked about a recent report alleging that Louisville Subway police officers, despite their training, acted by returning fire during the incident that resulted in Breonna Taylor’s death, Cameron, his office said recently presented a task force to review the search warranty process.
“The goal of this task force is to create a search warrant execution process that will be used as a national model,” he said. “We have a lot of people at the table.”
All members of the task force have been announced, and Cameron hopes to meet for the first time in the coming weeks.
