Investigation Finds Some Police Departments Frequently Using 'Exceptional Clearance' Method To Clear Rape Cases
For some police departments across the country, there may be more to some of their crime statistics than it would appear.
A new investigation from ProPublica, Newsy and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting finds some departments are routinely using a method of clearing rape cases that’s meant to be used for extraordinary circumstances.
It’s called "exceptional clearance."
Mark Greenblatt, the senior national investigative correspondent for the Scripps Washington Bureau, joined The Show to talk more about the investigation.
