Ramsey Takes Another Gig, at U of Cincinnati
Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has added another item to his fast-growing list of retirement jobs. The latest? He’ll examine campus police practices at the University of Cincinnati in the wake of a controversial shooting there.
The university announced last week that Ramsey will help lead a 12-member team in the project. The review was promised as part of a $5.3 million settlement with the family of Samuel DuBose, a black driver who was shot and killed in July by a university police officer who had pulled him over for not having a front license plate. The officer has been charged with murder and pleaded not guilty.
In addition to the Cincinnati job, Ramsey is also serving as a consultant to Wilmington police, and as a distinguished visiting fellow at Drexel University. Perhaps most notably, he’s also been tapped to advise the Chicago Police Department as it faces its own high-profile civil rights isues.
