One-on-one with Safety Director Michael McGrath

One-on-one with Safety Director Michael McGrath

19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek had a one-on-one with Safety Director Michael McGrath.

McGrath has been under fire since the Department of Justice report was released because he was Chief of Police when many of the incidents occurred.

Safety Director McGrath tells Ed Gallek he is not sure what one thing he'll do to address points raised by the Department of Justice report on use of force.

McGrath has no plan to step down despite calls to resign, since he was Chief of Cleveland Police when the Justice Department spotlighted use of excessive force complaints.

McGrath also admits some police officers are "overzealous" but use of force has dropped in total in recent years.

He is still going through the report piece by piece. Stay tuned for more from 19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek First at Four.
