Williams Comments On Executive Order Creating The Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board

April 29, 2015

Columbus, OH—Senator Sandra Williams (D-Cleveland) released the following statement after Governor Kasich established the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board through an Executive Order:

“As a member of the Ohio Task Force on Community-Police Relations, it was crucial that the recommendations we offered have long-term, meaningful impacts on improving the relationship between members of the community and law enforcement.”

“While I applaud the Governor for creating the new advisory board, it is imperative that we seriously consider implementing policies that reflect our recommendations in a timely fashion. We as legislators and community leaders must continue to address the concerns and advocate on the behalf of Ohioans who feel there is mistrust and disconnect between them and those charged with protecting their communities.”
