PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Philadelphia's new police commissioner made her first appearance in City Council Thursday, testifying at a hearing of the Special Committee on Gun Violence Prevention.

Danielle Outlaw got a warm reception from Councilmembers and an earful from families of murder victims.

Councilmembers, including Allan Domb, urged her to ask for whatever she needs.

"I believe in the very basic tenets of procedural justice: voice, neutrality, respect and trust. I believe in the inclusion of local, state and federal partners, I believe in the use of data to inform strategic deployment of resources," she said.
