Ohio Police Reform Proposals

Featured Audio

Spurred by protests after the death of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Ohio's governor and attorney general last week unveiled reforms for police in Ohio, including a ban on chokeholds in most cases and a requirement that new recruits undergo psychological evaluation. Critics say it doesn't do nearly enough to address the root problem -- racism in the ranks. We'll discuss with  Attorney General Dave Yost.  A bit later, we'll invite Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes, who has said that the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus was not consulted. 

Guests: 

Dave Yost, Attorney General, State of Ohio 
State Rep. Emilia Sykes, (D-Akron), Ohio House Minority Leader  
Andy Chow, Statehouse News Bureau Reporter, Ohio Public Radio/TV
