Good morning Mr. Sinyangwe,

Per your request, I have attached an electronic copy (PDF) of our current Use of Force policy. The policy had some minor redactions applied for the following reasons per Donrey of Nevada v. Bradshaw:

-Investigative Technique
-Jeopardy to Law Enforcement

Should you have any questions, please ask.

Thank you.
