The city of Cleveland passed a resolution Monday evening to require all special police forces within the city to undergo anti-bias and sensitivity training.

It stemmed from an incident involving Cleveland City Councilman Kevin Conwell and Case Western Reserve University in mid-March. Conwell was stopped and questioned by CWRU officers while walking through campus — much of which includes his ward. The university’s president apologized, but Conwell believes it was a case of racial profiling.

“I was very, very disappointed and I went home and to make a man cry…,” Conwell said. “I’m going to do something about it,” Conwell said. “I will put policy out there. Because I can do something about it to make sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

City council passed the resolution unanimously.
