LAPD Explains Deadly Force Training

The department welcomed guests to the Police Academy to showcase how officers are trained to use deadly force.

The Los Angeles Police Department welcomed guests to the Police Academy Wednesday in order to highlight efforts to train officers in use-of-force.

The training included a seminar by behavioral scientist Bill Lewinski.

Lewinski praised the LAPD's force training as among the best in the U.S. 

Use-of-force policies are coming under increased scrutiny after last week, law enforcement officers fatally shot Miriam Carey in Washington, D.C.
