COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) has named the members of a first-ever Ohio police standards board that will lay out rules for law enforcement on the proper use of deadly force.

The creation of the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board was sparked by a series of fatal police shootings, including the November death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland.

The board will create standards for hiring, recruiting and local community interaction, such as such as addressing safety issues and educating people on the daily challenges faced by officers.

Members named Friday include former state Sen. Nina Turner of Cleveland; the Rev. Damon Lynch III of Cincinnati; and Oregon, Ohio, Police Chief Michael Navarre (nuh-VAHR’).
