How to Build a Better Police Department

Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) — In 2001, a white Cincinnati police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teen named Timothy Thomas, setting off three days of riots and looting. Thomas was the 15th black man to be killed by Cincinnati police in six years. After a class action lawsuit, federal intervention and years of reform Cincinnati is now being held up as a model of modern policing. Bloomberg takes a ride with the CPD and talks to the city’s reformers to find out what’s changed and see how, after the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, it can be replicated in other parts of the country.
