UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -

University of Cincinnati officials are scheduled to provide an update Tuesday on campus safety and reforms following the officer-involved shooting death of Sam DuBose.

A community forum will be held 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at UC's Cincinnati Faculty Club, Richard Lindner Center.

UC's top safety officials are expected to speak: Robin Engel, vice president for safety and reform; James Whalen, director of public safety and S. Gregory Baker, director of police community relations.

Those who attend are permitted to ask questions and provide input, campus officials said.

In September, the university released an independent investigative report that called the DuBose shooting "entirely preventable" and former campus officer Ray Tensing made "critical errors in judgment" during the July 19 traffic stop.

Tensing, 25, was indicted on charges of aggravated murder and voluntary manslaughter. UC fired him, and a police union has filed an appeal on his behalf.

He pulled DuBose, 43, over because DuBose vehicle was missing a front license plate.

Tensing has said he was being dragged by DuBose's vehicle as he tried to flee the stop, but Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Tensing's body camera video showed he murdered DuBose.
