WEWS TV 5 aired a one-hour special, Road to Reform: Investigating the Failures & Uncovering the Solutions for the Cleveland Police Department, on Tuesday, December 8, 2015.
The Road to Reform special was produced as a result of the final report released on December 4, 2014 from the U.S. Department of Justice of its investigation of the Cleveland police department. The final report found a series of systemic problems and laid out a pattern of excessive force, inadequate training, ineffective policies and poor community engagement.
Road to Reform is the culmination of a year-long investigation into the Cleveland police that traveled from Detroit to Memphis to Durham.
