Description

The I-Team investigated members of the Cleveland Police Ceremonial Unit who managed to rack up thousands of ceremonial compensatory hours by "'piling on' at the funerals of retired officers." The team found that compensatory payments to the ceremonial unit, hand-picked by the chief, added up to millions of dollars at a time when the city was laying off 261 officers because of budget shortfalls.
