Police panel to review Carpenter shooting

        Cincinnati's Citizens Police Review Panel on Monday will begin its review of the controversial fatal police shooting of Michael Carpenter.

        The seven-member panel will decide the best way to handle the Carpenter case review.

        It has the power to hold public hearings and call witnesses or simply review the investigatory files from the police and the Office of Municipal Investigations (OMI).

        Created by council in January, the panel is charged with investigating alleged police misconduct after the formal probes by OMI and police are complete. The members met for the first time Oct. 18. The members have decided to give all cases when police fire shots a priority, in chronological order, dating to the Jan. 21 council ordinance that created the panel.

        The March 19 fatal shooting of Michael Carpenter is the next case with completed investigations by OMI and police.

        The public meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 801 Plum St., Committee Room B. For more information contact the panel's office at 352-2499.
