Election 2018: Initiative 940 on Law Enforcement Training

October 25, 2018 - 3:16 pm

KBCS continues its Elections 2018 coverage, taking a look at Initiative 940 on law enforcement training and use of deadly force. The measure would require law enforcement to receive violence de-escalation and mental health training, as well as change standards for use of deadly force and require independent investigations in the case that an officer’s use of deadly force results in death or substantial or great bodily harm. In addition, law enforcement would be required to provide first aid to save lives. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama spoke with Leslie Cushman, Citizen Sponsor for Initiative 940 and Co-Chair of De-Escalate Washington, and Teresa Taylor, Executive Director of the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs, who opposes Initiative 940.
