GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The handcuffing of an 11-year-old girl was discussed at Tuesday's city commission meeting in Grand Rapids on Dec. 19.
GRPD Chief David Rahinsky announced that more body camera footage of the incident could be released as early as tomorrow.
It was on Dec. 6 that officers handcuffed 11-year-old Honestie Hodges as they searched for a stabbing suspect. Rahinsky called his officers actions inappropriate.
At Tuesday's meeting some city commissioners said they would like to see the officers involved in the incident reassigned.
"A study was conducted by the police department that demonstrated racial bias within the department. It's a culture that needs to be addressed and yet there have been no policy or procedure changes within GRPD yet," said Jeremy Deroo who attended the meeting.
City leaders also said they would like to see a new policy from the GRPD on how they will handle children in the future.
