CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in Cincinnati are expressing displeasure over criticism of their role in the case of a University of Cincinnati officer who fatally shot an unarmed black motorist.

Fraternal Order of Police local president Dan Hils says members have voted against participating in updating a long-standing agreement on reforms to improve community policing and transparency.

Hils says members are "extremely disappointed" by criticism from two participants in the collaborative effort of a police investigator who testified that Ray Tensing's shooting of Sam DuBose could be justified.

Murder charges against Tensing were dismissed Monday after two hung juries.

The FOP also took a "no confidence" vote in the county prosecutor following prosecution criticism of the police investigation. Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE'-turs) responded Tuesday that he has "full confidence" in Cincinnati police.
