Minimizing harm, saving lives

This article with videos reviews changes made to police tactics and culture in Camden, New Jersey since 2013. The department adopted “scoop and go” for gunshot victims, emphasizes that repositioning is not retreating when facing armed suspects, and prefers warnings over traffic tickets. The chief considers himself an unlikely reformer, having gotten the position because “he looks like he won’t get indicted in the next six months — he’ll do.”

    When will more police departments start ‘Celebrating SAVES’ and release the video of how they saved lives? I wrote abot this two years ago. See page ‘Commentaries’ on page 14 of Las Vegas Tribune edition February 25-March 3, 2015.
