The draft is not the entire police, officials said, but it includes the foundational components of the Use of Force Policy: core principles, expanded definitions, levels of force and revised general policies.
The public comment period begins Tuesday, Jan. 17, and ends Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Officials said a link for comments will be available next week, and “all comments will be reviewed and taken into consideration before the policy is finalized.”
The remaining sections of the policy will be amended and released later for public review and comment. Those sections of the policy include force options, reporting requirements and duty to intervene, according to a release.
