Hundreds Ask Cleveland to Reopen Police Mini-stations

Friday, 27 Feb 2015 09:10 AM

Hundreds of people are asking Cleveland to reopen police mini-stations as leaders consider reforms for the city's police department.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports  more than 1,500 people have signed a petition demanding the mini-stations' return.

The city established the stations at community centers in the 1990s to connect officers and residents, but closed them in 2005.

Councilwoman Dona Brady has said staffing the mini-stations might have prevented the November fatal police shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was carrying a pellet gun when he was shot outside a recreation center that was once home to a mini-station.

A 20-month Department of Justice investigation found a pattern and practice of Cleveland police using excessive force and violating rights. The city and DOJ have begun negotiating a consent decree.
