Report due on police investigation

        U.S. Department of Justice investigators will be in Cincinnati Monday to discuss preliminary findings about the Police Division, city officials said Friday.

        The investigators are expected to deliver a report to the city manager and outline their future plans, said acting Safety Director S. Greg Baker.

        Billy Martin, the Washington, D.C., lawyer hired to represent the city in the case, was at City Hall Friday to brief city officials on its status.

        Chief Tom Streicher said city officials asked for the meeting because they want an idea of the investigation's status.

        “I don't know what position they're in right now or what they'll be able to tell us,” he said. “I would hope for some discussion on where we go from here.”

        Mayor Charlie Luken invited U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft to investigate the Police Division after the April riots that followed the police shooting of Timothy Thomas.
