Chillicothe Police Department “Use Of Force” Training
The Chillicothe Police Department had training on “Use of Force” with a program provided by the city’s Insurance carrier, MIRMA. Police Chief Jon Maples says it is important training for every officer.
A recent incident in Minnesota showed the importance of knowing what weapon you have in your hand. Chief Maples says his officers are required to have their taser and service weapon worn on opposite sides of their body.
He says during the simulations, the intensity of the scenario can change, just as it does in real life.
MIRMA provides the departments an opportunity for the “Use of Force” simulator training, but Chief Maples says it is a requirement for all of the officers in his department.
