Luken: Police No Longer Needs Justice Department

Mayor says police no longer need Justice Department oversight

The mayor of Cincinnati says the city no longer needs the Justice Department to oversee reforms in police procedures and practices.

Mayor Charlie Luken says police have made major improvements since the Justice Department began looking into police practices following the riots of April 2001.

The court-appointed monitor who oversees the reforms says he thinks the Justice Department should continue oversight.
