CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati says it’s placed its 911 center under civilian control during an overhaul after a 16-year-old boy died in a minivan parked near his school.
Teenager Kyle Plush died April 10 despite placing 911 calls for help.
Acting City Manager Patrick Duhaney announced Tuesday that Jayson Dunn, who oversees technology for the city, will take over the job temporarily.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Dunhaney told city council and Mayor John Cranley it’s important to have the city’s best resources on hand to ensure the overhaul’s success.
Police Capt. James Gramke had overseen the center since March. He will move to another job within the police department.
Fraternal Order of Police President Dan Hils said he was shocked, calling Gramke the potential remedy for problems at the center.
