Details on the crucial first step in the overhaul of the Cleveland Police Department will be submitted to a federal judge today. 

WKSU’s M.L. Schultze says the emphasis will be on use of force and training.

The plan is a first step toward implementing an agreement between the city of Cleveland and the U.S. Justice Department to address problems with training, use-of-force and community-police relations.
