Ohio Attorney General David Yost is calling for more respect - and more training - for law enforcement officers.

All shootings by Ohio police officers and any deaths of individuals in custody would be investigated by independent agencies under a proposal announced Wednesday by Governor Mike DeWine. 

Cleveland police cadets will head to Columbus on Monday for the Ohio State Highway Patrol Training Academy.   Today Cuyahoga County Judge Carolyn Friedland lifted a temporary restraining order blocking the move.  For Ohio Public Radio,  Kevin Niedermier of member station WKSU reports.  

Police officers in Ohio will soon be required to have a high school diploma or equivalent under several police training changes cleared by a state panel.
