PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – An independent review of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police’s policies will be led by a former Washington County District Attorney.

According to a press release from the Mayor’s Office, Steven M. Toprani will be reviewing how the policies apply to officers with other jobs or businesses outside of the bureau.

“Our goal is to implement clear-cut policies that reform if, how and when officers can conduct other work or business outside of their capacities as officers. We must ensure that the primary focus of every officer is keeping our neighborhoods safe,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said in a statement.

Once Toprani’s review is completed, he will make recommendations on how to best reform the current policies.

The former Washington County district attorney now serves as counsel with Leech Tishman Fuscaldo & Lampl.
