The Cincinnati Police Department won't be making changes suggested by two city council members. John Cranley re-introduced a plan from two years ago that would add 75 police officers to the force. Vice-Mayor Alicia Reece proposed re-instating the anti-gang unit and establishing a homicide task force. Both votes failed at last night's council meeting. Cincinnati's homicide rate is 28% higher this year than last. A long list of Westwood and Price Hill residents complained about an increase in crime and a decrease in property values.
