CLEVELAND — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Wednesday that another $12 million is going to local law-enforcement agencies for recruitment, retention and resilience.

The announcement was made a day after a Cleveland police officer was shot while on duty. The officer was conscious when taken to the hospital, according to Cleveland Police Chief Wayne Drummond.

The investigation is happening as the Cleveland Police Department, like other agencies, has struggled with a staffing shortage.
