As part of the responsibilities of the Ohio Task Force on Community-Police Relations, Stokes and 17 other committee members--mostly former and current politicians and government officials--will host four hearings to learn the public’s thoughts on current policing practices.

Aside from community input, Congressman Stokes says the group will look into the criminal justice system in the state, along with hiring procedures and the level of psychiatric training officers may be receiving.

"We must do something in terms of the means by which we investigate and have a fair hearing of any type of killings by police," said Stokes.

The group’s first meeting will be held in Cleveland early next week, and is expected to issue recommendations by the end of April.
