A Black-led collective of legal, faith, community, and movement leaders demands a federal investigation into the Columbus Division of Police. The Columbus Police Accountability Coalition says the division's long-standing patterns of violence and misconduct against Black people must be investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther requested a Department of Justice investigation into the city’s police department Wednesday following a spate of police killings of Black people.

The federal prosecutor leading an investigation into a $60 million bribery probe at the Ohio Statehouse has announced his resignation.

Eighteen months ago, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson vehemently rejected state claims that the city’s police department has “systemic” problems.
