BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Amid a national conversation about law enforcement’s use of force with people of color, Louisiana lawmakers are creating a task force to study police training, misconduct and racial bias recognition.
The Police Training, Screening and Deescalation Task Force will make recommendations to state lawmakers about ways to ensure reporting of law enforcement misconduct, penalties for improper actions and removal of “bad actors.”You're going to name it the PTSD Task Force? Really? Y'all couldn't do any better than that name? Couldn't make it any more cringe-worthy?
Louisiana has had for years, a board called the POST council. (Peace Officers Standards and Training). Every bit of training I got for the past 30 years was approved and vetted by that council. By-and-large, they did a good job in police training. I wonder if this new task force is supposed to complement of supplant the POST council?
PTSD Task Force? That's funny, right there!
