The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Dozens Seek Release Of Video In Wal-Mart Shooting
A crowd of about 100 people gathered at the Ohio Attorney General’s office to call for the release of store security video in the fatal police shooting of a man at a Dayton-area Wal-Mart.
Organizers say they want to see what happened on Aug. 5 when John Crawford III, 21, was fatally shot by police. Officers say he refused to drop an air rifle inside a Wal-Mart store in Beavercreek.
The group that gathered Monday night in Columbus called for transparency in the investigation, which is being headed by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, a branch of Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office.
DeWine’s spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said she’s not aware of any plans to release video before the case is closed.
