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