The University of Cincinnati has appointed a criminology professor to oversee reforms of its police department following the killing of an unarmed black man by a white university police officer during an off-campus traffic stop.
Robin S. Engel, director of the university’s Institute of Crime Sciences, will work alongside James L. Whalen, a longtime Cincinnati police commander who will join the university as public-safety director beginning in September. The university also hired S. Gregory Baker, another longtime local police administrator, who will serve as director of police-community relations.
