Public Input Still Needed In Sha'Teina Grady El Case

Jun 24, 2020

Public input is still being requested in the Sha’Teina Grady El incident that took place last month.  

Nearly 500 people have responded to an online survey on what steps the county should take after a Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputy was recorded punching Sha’Teina Grady El, while arresting her in Ypsilanti Township in May.  The Community Advisory Board for Law Enforcement (CABLE), which is an independent board affiliated with Washtenaw County, is collecting the public input through June 30th.  Justin Hodge is chair of the board.

Justin Hodge: There are people that think that the outcome should be some kind of training, or that certain disciplinary action should be taken against the deputy.

The advisory board will present the results of the survey to the sheriff’s office.  Meanwhile, the state’s Attorney General’s Office is reviewing Grady El’s legal case.  You can take the survey here.
