This is WVXU's special series from April 2021 looking back at the civil unrest of 2001 on the 20th anniversary of the police killing of Timothy Thomas, a young Black man, that led to remarkable change in the city of Cincinnati.

How Policing In Cincinnati Has Changed Since 2001

Local 12 WKRC

Since the 2001 civil unrest, changes to policing in Cincinnati have served as a national model. In 2002, the city of Cincinnati signed the Collaborative Agreement and declared community problem-oriented policing would be the strategy for police services in the city. The strategy shifted the focus to prevention. Cincinnati has seen a dramatic reduction in use of force and arrests over the past 20 years, which mirrors a national trend.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss police reforms since 2001 are Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac; and with the Sentinel Police Association Former President and Cincinnati Police Officer Scotty Johnson; and Cincinnati Police DepartmentLt. Emmett Gladden.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
