Once the review by the C. A.’s Office has been completed, Chief Durham will host a community discussion about the Department’s training in defensive tactics, use-of-force, and crisis intervention.
“I made a promise to the community that, once this process is finished, I would explain how and why we train our officers,” said Chief Durham. “I invite anyone who wants to learn more about that training to attend.”
Prior to the community meeting, the Department will post resource material on-line; including Basic Recruit Class Curriculum Hours, and General Orders covering Use-of-Force and Crisis Intervention Training.
