Ohio cops who used racial slurs will keep jobs

By  | 

CINCINNATI, Ohio (CNN) - Two Ohio police officers recorded using racial slurs on body cameras will not be fired from their jobs.

Chief Eliot Issac, of the Cincinnati Police Department, says he knows the sting of the N-word. He said he's had it directed towards him personally and professionally.

He's apologizing to the community there after body camera video shows two of his officers using the slur. He says an investigation of what happened will conclude soon and hopes the community will not let the slurs of two tarnish daily work of the rest.

"I will do everything that I can to ensure that it won't be utilized by anyone that wears this uniform,” he said.

The two officers in question are on restricted desk duty until the investigation into what happened is complete. Both have also been stripped of their policing powers.
