County Sheriff Won't Send Deputies To Cleveland For RNC

Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott says he has rescinded his offer to send more than 30 deputies to Cleveland to assist with security during the Republican National Convention. Scott says city officials did not adequately address his concerns over insurance coverage for deputies who may be facing violence during the convention. Cleveland officials have declined comment. Police officials in Greensboro, North Carolina recently decided not to send officers to the convention. Cincinnati police also declined Cleveland’s request for officers. Columbus police will send officers to the city, but officials are not saying how many.
