Following the fatal shooting of Sam DuBose by then-University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, the university put a team in place to focus on police reform and improved community relations. Criminal justice researcher Dr. Robin Engel has been appointed to the new role of Vice President for Safety and Reform, and UC hired James Whalen as Director of Public Safety and S. Gregory Baker as Director of Police Community Relations. The university also recently announced plans to implement a program similar to the collaborative agreement that governs the Cincinnati Police Department. Dr. Robin Engel and S. Gregory Baker join us this afternoon to discuss how UC will analyze and reform university policing policies.
