Columbus Police Want Lion Sculptures Returned

Aug 14, 2012

Columbus police say they'd like to see the trademark lion sculptures returned to the perch outside of headquarters they've used since 1991. Mayor Micheal Coleman's decision to move the sculptures to the Central Police Precinct over the weekend is not sitting well with some officers who note they stand for every fellow officer who died in the line of duty. The city removed the statues unbeknownst to officers in the dead of night Sunday using heavy lifting equipment.
