The cover of this month's Summit County Sheriff's Office newsletter has the leader of Akron's NAACP chapter concerned.

Judi Hill told The Beacon Journal she feels the cover photo of Sheriff Steve Barry and SWAT team members posing with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani at a campaign event in August is an inappropriate use of public funds this close to an election and undermines the relationship between law enforcement and the African American community. Barry says the picture is not an endorsement for Trump, but rather was a rare opportunity for the SWAT team to get a picture with someone they were protecting.

Both Hill and Barry joined The Jasen Sokol Show on Monday.
