CINCINNATI (AP) - University of Cincinnati police officers who halted their off-campus patrols after a UC officer’s fatal shooting of a motorist stopped for a missing front license plate have resumed the patrols except for traffic enforcement.

The action comes after Cincinnati City Council voted about two weeks ago to suspend the city-university agreement allowing UC police to patrol city streets.

The university says a new interim plan discussed with city officials allows the patrols other than for traffic enforcement. UC President Santa Ono’s statement says he had received many requests to resume patrols in neighborhoods near campus.

UC officer Ray Tensing was charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter in the July 19 death of 43-year-old Samuel DuBose. Tensing was fired by the university and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
