Chief Mike Koval, UW Professor David Canon on Capital City Sunday

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police Chief Mike Koval discussed the city's escalating violence on this week's edition of Capital City Sunday.

Chief Koval talked about a recent spate of related homicides and whether the city is at a tipping point when it comes to violent crime. He also discussed the state's decision to force Madison Police to transport all emergency detention inmates to Winnebago County, instead of the Mendota Mental Health Institute. Koval is challenging that issue in court, saying it costs his department unnecessary time and money.

UW-Madison Political Science Chair David Canon was also on the program this week to discuss the federal redistricting lawsuit that wrapped up in Dane County last Friday.

This edition of Capital City Sunday aired on May 29.
