Use of force incidents by law enforcement officials are now on the decline after a major internal policy change.
Taking a cue from President Donald Trump, law enforcement agencies have declared their new push to reduce use of force incidents by no longer documenting them a resounding success.
According to Altruria Chief of Police Trina Watkins, this is considered a “win-win situation.”
“Since we as a department ceased documentation, use of force incidents have drastically declined. This has also freed up more resources to dedicate towards our community,” Watkins stated. “After seeing a sharp decrease in COVID-19 cases following the Atruria Public Health Department’s decision to implement this new documentation practice, it was easily a no-brainer to make the change here in our department.”
This comes after protesters across the country took issue with a number of excessive use of force incidents. Those people should now be able to return to their homes after achieving their goals.
