PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Eyewitness News analyst Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio joined us Wednesday to discuss the National Guard’s role during the riots in Baltimore.
The general said they were activated by Gov. Larry Hogan to support local police.
The more than 1,000 troops are also helping around the state since so many police officers are in the city.
Centracchio also touched upon what should come next with police departments and dealing with issues down the road.
