New Rules for the LAPD?

Hosted by

Two members of the LA Police Commission are calling on the LAPD to overhaul its use of force policy. Those changes include defining – clearly – when officers can use deadly force, and holding officers accountable when they do. The changes in policy – proposed by Commission President Matt Johnson and Commissioner Robert Saltzman – would reshape the way the Commission examines police shootings if they’re approved. And they come as the department – and law enforcement in general – are increasingly under the microscope. 38 people were shot by LAPD officers last year; 21 of them died.
