Regarding the investigation into Cincinnati Police Officer Christopher Schroder, Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented:
“My office is aware of the investigation into Cincinnati Police Personal Crimes Unit Officer Christopher Schroder, for dereliction of duty relating to sexual assault investigations. These allegations are incredibly disturbing.
We are working closely with our partners in the Cincinnati Police Department to determine the extent to which these allegations have effected investigations. Our highest priorities are our victims of crime. We are seeking to rectify any issues stemming from this behavior and deliver justice, and we will continue to work with the Cincinnati Police Department to ensure that takes place.
I can’t fathom what would cause a police officer to do this. But, we will do everything in our power to make sure he is never again a police officer.”
