ACLU of Ohio Urges Improvements to Cleveland Police’s Search and Seizure Policies
By Emma Keeshin
As part of its consent decree process, the Cleveland Division of Police is revising its search and seizure policies, which govern when and how officers can stop, arrest, and detain community members. Although its 2018 revised drafts represent an improvement, there are still changes that must be made for the policies to comply with basic best practices.
We continue to engage with the City and Monitoring Team to ensure these policies will protect all Clevelanders, regardless of their race, age, gender, or LGBTQ status.
