The Cincinnati Black United Front, the and a coalition of civil rights activists are holding a press conference on the steps of City Hall at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The group says they want police accountability under the Collaborative Agreement.

The shooting death of Timothy Thomas by Cincinnati Police Officer Stephen Roach in 2001 lead to historic police reforms in the city. But talks to "refresh" the Collaborative Agreement stalled in 2017 and 2018. Now, there is a new call to return to the negotiating table on the Collaborative Agreement.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss today's press conference is Iris Roley of the Cincinnati Black United Front.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
