SHEFFIELD LAKE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio police chief seen in a surveillance video putting a note saying “Ku Klux Klan” and a jacket displayed like a KKK robe and hood on a Black officer’s desk has retired.
Anthony Campo resigned shortly after Sheffield Lake Mayor Dennis Bring confronted him on Tuesday.
No publicly available telephone numbers were found for Campo to seek his comment on Friday.
Bring learned what happened from the city law director after the police union representing the officer filed a harassment complaint. The video, which did not include sound, shows Campo and the officer talking briefly after the officer discovered the note and jacket on his desk.
