Columbus mayor asks for investigation of police department


COLUMBUS, OH – Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther has requested an investigation and review of his city’s police department after two deadly shootings in the past six months. Ginther spoke Monday saying that the Columbus Police Department reform effort requires a review by the federal government.

“The city of Columbus is committed to reform,” Ginther said. “We must align the reality of how we are policing with the community expectations of how we should be policing.”
