Ohio’s capital city is disbanding its police department’s unit that was supposed to focus on “moral crimes.”
… Three of the vice unit’s 10 officers are currently under suspension.
Quinlan said that vice-related crimes, now under the narcotics division, will be handled differently and with a more community-based approach.
…The unit also came under scrutiny last year when vice officers arrested adult film actress Stormy Daniels at a Columbus strip club.
Daniels’ federal defamation lawsuit alleges that officers conspired to retaliate against her because of her claims she had sex with Donald Trump before he became president. An investigation determined the arrest was improper.
