Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath says 64 patrol officers have been disciplined for breaking departmental rules in connection with a police chase in November 2012.
The officers were found to be in violation of such departmental rules as speeding, failure to obtain permission to join the chase and insubordination.
Collectively the department handed out 178 suspension days, 2 written warnings, and 9 non-disciplinary letters of reinstruction to the 64 officers.
No officers were fired as a result of their involvement in the chase.
Earlier this year, the police department reviewed the supervisors involved in the chase. After disciplinary hearings 12 supervisors received reprimands. Of that number, 9 were suspended, 2 were demoted and 1 supervisor was terminated.
