New York Times: Cleveland settles with Justice Department on policing
CLEVELAND– Changes to policing that the FOX 8 I-Team first reported on last year may be announced for Cleveland as soon as Tuesday.
Last year, the I-Team reported on major changes to policing in Cincinnati after that city reached an agreement with the Justice Department on how its officers would do their jobs.
It follows a scathing Justice Department report released in December that found Cleveland police often engaged in a pattern or practice of using excessive force.
Any agreement would almost certainly include some outside oversight of the Cleveland Police Department by a federal judge.
