Revise Use of Force Policies and Training


Direct police departments across the state to revise their
policies and training on use of force to authorize only the
minimal amount of force necessary:
• To protect citizen and officer safety,
• That is proportional to the incident,
• That brings an unlawful situation safely and
effectively under control, and
• That preserves the constitutional and human
rights of the citizen.
