Internal Report: Cincinnati Officer Who Tased 11-Year-Old Violated Four CPD Policies

The Aug. 6 tasing of an 11-year-old girl by Cincinnati Police officer Kevin Brown violated multiple department policies, an internal use of force report says.

According to that report, Brown violated policy when he:

Failed to turn his body camera on until after deploying his Taser

Made a prejudicial comment involving race

Deployed his Taser when a lesser use of force would have been more appropriate

Did not warn the girl he was going to use the Taser

Brown was working an off-duty security detail at the Kroger on Kennard Ave. near Spring Grove Village when he received reports from employees there that three minors were stealing items, including candy and soda, from the store. Brown approached one of the girls, who had tried to leave through a locked exit. Brown asked her to stop three times. She continued walking, so he tased her from about 10 feet away. Security footage from Kroger shows that incident, which Brown has admitted to.

Only after the incident did he activate his body camera.
