EXCLUSIVE: One-on-one with new UC Police Chief

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

As the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of Sam Dubose is days away, the new University of Cincinnati Police chief promises to continue reforms to the department.

Chief Anthony Carter takes over a department once embattled in controversy, going through a massive review and reform.

Last July, now ex-UC Police Officer Ray Tensing shot and killed Dubose during an off-campus traffic stop.  Tensing is facing murder charges in relation to the incident.

On Thursday, Carter sat down exclusively with FOX19 NOW on campus. Watch the interview above. 

"I felt that I could be a part of the change, a positive part of the change efforts, the reform, that UC was looking for," said Carter.

That reform has been a focal point of the university for many months. 

"Things can always be done better," Carter said. "To me, that's part of law enforcement."

University leaders ordered a review of policies, procedures and training after ex-officer Ray Tensing shot and killed Sam DuBose last year.

The first anniversary of DuBose's death is next week - the same week Carter finishes his first month on the job. 

"I don't want to speak to what my predecessors and what they accomplished or did not accomplish," stated Carter. "But what I will say is, right now where we are, we will continue to make improvements."

He says the department is reviewing almost everything including, training, personnel, policies and the use of force. 

"We review policies from A to Z," said Carter. "Every single policy that the university has, that the University of Cincinnati Police Department has, gets a review."

With more than 20 years of policing experience, Carter has taken over for Jason Goodrich, who resigned in February after the review.  

"It's my responsibility to make sure that we cover every base, we look at every option, we look at every opportunity,” Carter told FOX19 NOW.  “Ultimately the buck stops here, and I understand that."
