CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- WCIA-3 News is digging deeper than just the headlines. We're focusing more time on issues important to the community.
As a result we are launching a new series from "Your Local News Leader." It is called 30 Minutes. There's a panel discussion with area leaders, law enforcement, the Champaign County State's Attorney, professors and doctoral students from UI.
You can get involved. Thursday, at 7:30 pm, at the Hilton Garden Inn, there's a panel discussion where there will be more details about the training officers receive. Also, hear from the sister of Sandra Bland, the Chicago-native who died while in police custody in Texas.
