Cranston Mayor Allan Fung asked state police to review the Cranston Police Department after two city wards were hit with a high number of parking tickets. The two wards in question are represented by councilors who had voted against a police contract.
Council President John Lanni says he plans to release copies of the findings by state police.
"First I'm going to give it to all members of the City Council. We've been waiting a long time," Lanni said. "And then I'm going to make it public at the same time. I think they're damaging to the mayor. It shows political interference in matters of the police department, and the mayor has a lot of explaining to do as far as I'm concerned."
Fung was unavailable for comment for this report. An aide says the mayor is trying to get a copy of the report by state police on the Cranston department.
