In preparation for the June 24th Workshop dedicated to discussing the FPD's Use of Force Policies and Training efforts, please submit your questions. 

For reference: View FPD Reports and Policies

With only 300 violent crimes, but nearly 50,000 police initiated interactions, how do you collect data and then use that data to ensure that there is not bias? If you are doing so currently, then recognizing that failure, given that 18.4% of the cities population is black, but they are 28% of traffic stops and 46% of use of force incidents according to their own data outlined for year 4 of the CALEA report they paid for to be done. How will you fix that and how will you do so in a transparent and accountable way?

It sounds like the Acting Chief attempted to answer this question by saying "many of our interactions are with people from out of city/out of state." I don't accept that as an adequate answer, and I don't think you should, either.
