Description

WBNS-TV investigates the hiring practices of the Columbus Division of Police, and finds that "minority candidates are falling out of the process at higher rates than the white one did." The story reveals that the current ratio of African-Americans police officers in Columbus is lower than the 15% level determined by the federal government in 1985.
