Statement from President Hardin on the Community Safety Advisory Commission Report

[COLUMBUS, OH] The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Columbus City Council President Shannon G. Hardin:

“The Community Safety Advisory Commission’s recommendations offer a critical opportunity for our new Chief of Police, officers and residents to fight racism and make our neighborhoods safer. I applaud the Commission for these clear recommendations to reform the Division of Police, especially the recommendation to form an independent civilian review board.  While I recognize that implementing an independent civilian review board is a complex process, such a body would improve accountability and transparency, a important step towards building trust between residents and our Division of Police.“
