MIAMI TWP, Ohio — Miami Twp. is at the center of one police-related civil lawsuit and could face more legal action after an incident that led to the deputy chief being put on paid administrative leave.
Plus, the liability risk of the department may be higher because police leadership failed to maintain its 1994 accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement officers (CALEA), an organization that touts best practices and says it limits risk from lawsuits. Police Chief Chris Krug said many factors conspired as to why re-accreditation hasn't happened during his 16-year tenure.
