CLEVELAND – Cleveland’s police chief denies conclusions in the Ohio attorney general’s report that found “systemic failures” within the police department contributed to a Nov. 29 chase turned fatal shooting.
“Our two month investigation reveals that we are dealing with a systematic failure in the Cleveland Police Department. Command staff failed, communications failed, the system failed,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
About an hour later at a news conference at Cleveland City Hall, Chief Mike McGrath emphatically denied the findings.
“Systematic, no. There are policies and procedures and training in place.”
McGrath said his department’s own administrative investigation will now begin into the deadly chase, adding it will determine whether officers involved complied with policies and procedures or not.
McGrath promised if policies were not followed, “somebody will be held accountable.”
