Gaps flagged in Ga. use-of-force training
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A consultant says deadly force training by DeKalb County police "is lacking in some very critical areas" about when to use force, but Chief Executive Officer Vernon Jones said Friday there is no indication those shortcomings figured in a recent surge of fatal police shootings.
Jones emphasized that a review conducted by the consulting firm of former Atlanta and New York police boss Lee Brown found that DeKalb police use-of-force policies are in line with national standards. "I am very happy to report there are no smoking guns," Jones said at a news conference Friday.
