ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A report released Tuesday by the City of Rochester's Office of Public Integrity said the office found "no evidence" that any city employee violated any "policies or ethical standards" in the death of Daniel Prude.

However, the office says it did identify "several opportunities for policies, procedures, and standards to be created or enhanced" to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Prude was not breathing and had no pulse after he was restrained and handcuffed by officers in late March. He died seven days later in the hospital after being taken off life support. The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide and said Prude died from complications of asphyxia due to physical restraint, excited delirium and PCP. 

His death didn't become public knowledge until early September.

Earlier this month, the office of Attorney General Letitia James released six videos of Prude’s interactions with police. The attorney general’s office says it made some redactions. Click here to watch the videos.
