California Department of Justice AND IACP Report and Recommendations


At the request of the Sacramento Police Department (SPD), the California Department of Justice (DOJ) conducted an independent assessment of the department's use of force-related policies, training and practices.  The DOJ report provides recommendations to help guide the reform efforts SPD has independently committed to pursue.  The report addresses the following six areas: Use of Force Policies, Use of Force Reporting and Investigation, Use of Force Training, Officer-Involved Shooting Incident Review, Personnel Complaint Procedures, and Community Engagement and Transparency.  Along with the DOJ's recommendations are the Sacramento Police Department's responses to each recommendation.
