Ohio County Seeks Sex-Crime Investigation Standards
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ohio's biggest county wants to standardize police investigations into alleged sex crimes, an issue highlighted in the serial murders of 11 women in Cleveland. Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County will outline the policy Wednesday afternoon. It details which hospitals are best suited to treat victims and suggests that reports be made on all sexual assaults. The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/JxkueM ) reported last year that 46 of 59 police departments in the county did not have a stand-alone policy for investigating sex crimes. Cleveland Rape Crisis Center President Megan O'Bryan says a comprehensive policy will prompt more victims to report sex crimes.
