COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Columbia Police Department held a police policy public review and input meeting Monday. The meeting was held at City Hall at 7 p.m. in conference room 1C.
The department will gather input on five draft policies, as well as the Explorers Program.
Some of the draft policies included training, office response to calls and public meetings.
Under the training policy, peace officers that have the authority would be required to complete training in racial profiling.
All commissioned personnel would also be required to complete 24 hours of training in handling persons with mental health cognitive impairment issues, de-escalation techniques, impact bias recognition and more.
The policies the group reviewed will go to the city manager's desk for him to sign off on.
