CINCINNATI (AP) - An Arizona police chief who visited Cincinnati last year to hear about city policing reforms in the Ohio city has returned in a new role to help review the University of Cincinnati’s police in the aftermath of a fatal shooting.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1QpIeDd ) that Roberto Villaseñor, the police chief in Tucson, Arizona, visited Cincinnati in January 2015. He is now part of the Exiger Advisory team that’s conducting a review of the university police department.

The review comes after Samuel DuBose was fatally shot by an officer who pulled him over for lacking a front license plate.

Villaseñor participated in a recent meeting at UC that allowed the team to meet the public. He says DuBose’s death shows that problems with police and community relations can happen anywhere.
