The town manager recently fired by Culpeper Town Council for her suspension a police captain said council told her to get more involved in overseeing the police department after the fatal shooting last February.

  "When the whole (Daniel) Harmon-Wright thing happened, council members came to me ... and said, 'First of all, why didn't you know about these other excessive force' (complaints)? I said because the chief never told me," said former Culpeper Town Manager Kim Alexander in an interview Thursday. "I was told I needed to get a handle on the police department that maybe this could have been prevented if the police department didn't operate so separately from the rest of town hall, if maybe the hiring procedures had been different, if maybe the town manager had a little more oversight. They told me to get involved in the police department, they told me to bring them back into the fold."
