Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey today announced that the police department will adopt stricter policies in hopes of reducing the amount of force officers use. The new policy requires that officers consider all reasonable alternatives before resorting to deadly force and that officers use the lowest level of force needed to safely control a subject. The policy also seeks to further limit the number of circumstances in which officers shoot at moving cars. Frey at an afternoon press conference said “make no mistake, we continue to approach public safety with clear eyes. We know it’s not possible to layout a curated list of every possible action of every possible reaction, there are no cure-alls in policing, anyone who tells you otherwise is misleading you.” Frey says failure to comply with the changes will result in discipline for the officers involved.
