The Cleveland Police Department is facing scrutiny from the city for coming up short-staffed in three specialty units.

The city council’s safety committee held a special hearing Wednesday to address the concerns.

The homicide unit hasn’t hit its desired count of 23 detectives, Chief Calvin Williams said, though four recent hires brought the total to 19.

The domestic violence and sex crimes units are similarly understaffed, he said.
