Police have a difficult job to perform. Life and death decisions are apart of their job description on a daily basis. When dealing with something as precious as life mistakes cannot be accepted. Police officers that function out of fear are more likely to make mistakes. A well-trained officer with multiple weapons at their disposal uses lethal force as a last resort. We are calling for all police officers to go through quarterly retraining of how to deal with different ethnicities and cultures when responding to threats and situations.
Funding for Police training is a budget line item that our elected officials’ control. Help us make police retraining a reality so that the killing stops.
