Statement from Columbus City Council Regarding the Police-Involved Incident

We are deeply disturbed and troubled by the video of the police incident that occurred over the weekend in Linden. These actions are contrary to how we expect Columbus Division of Police officers to conduct themselves with the community especially during intense situations.

We agree with the statement by Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. This behavior is questionable and inconsistent with the values of the City of Columbus. It erodes trust and confidence in our peace officers.

Police Chief Jacobs is conducting a full investigation of the incident with appropriate review provided by the Department of Public Safety.


This is a collective statement from Council President Zach Klein, Pro Tem Priscilla Tyson and members Elizabeth Brown, Mitchell Brown, Shannon Hardin, Jaiza Page and Michael Stinziano.
