Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said law enforcement in the state is strained because of declining resources to pay for cops on the street.He was in Cincinnati Friday to deliver opening remarks at the Ohio FOP annual conference. “I think if you talk about the state of law enforcement, it is strained in this state,” DeWine said. “There are probably fewer people in most departments than were there 5 years ago.”
Former Hamilton County commissioner and Cincinnati councilman David Pepper has launched his campaign to unseat Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
Monday, his campaign filed papers with the Ohio Secretary of State's office, so he can begin raising money for the 2014 campaign; and has launched a campaign website.
Pepper, who was in Cleveland Monday, told WVXU he wants "to be a real advocate for the working people of Ohio."
