Los Angeles Police Department taught the Canadian way when it comes to using force

Kim Brunhuber, CBC News, Apr 09, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What's interesting is not that the Los Angeles police are now using training methods employed by the RCMP, but rather, the manner in which training is now being conducted: "When I went through the academy, everything was compartmentalized... Now, recruits are trained the same way they operate in the field: in teams. Training the whole person rather than training on a specific task, training so that the constitutional policing and use-of-force policy and all the things that are important to the public are contained in every exercise and everyone is graded accordingly." Cadets are run through a simulator which runs through a variety of simulators. The instructors watch the cadets' performance. ""I'm not going to tell you what to do... (if you) understand policy, they will be the one to make that decision when and if to use deadly force."
