PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh’s police chief is moving forward with plans to open an Office of Professional Standards.

Cameron McLay says the office will be in charge of reviewing training, ethical standards and act as a safety net to prevent small problems from developing into crises.

McLay announced the new office at Tuesday’s department promotion ceremony. Assistant Chief Thomas Stangrecki will be in charge. He’s chief of administration.

McLay says the office will operate under some of the practices developed in the late 1990s and early 2000s when the department was subject to a federal consent decree to remedy a pattern of misconduct.
