Law’s Michael Benza discusses new policy implementations at Shaker Heights police

Changes coming to Shaker Heights Police Department after city, residents reach agreement
cleveland.comMichael Benza, professor of practice at the School of Law, discussed a move by Shaker Heights police to implement new policies and gain more resources after residents pushed to reform the department. “Most of the time, police departments in particular are very reluctant to keep and reveal demographic data about what they do,” he said. “It is relatively unusual for a city and a police department to agree to collect that data voluntarily and to make it public.”
