Expert Brian Dorow explains use of force training for Wisconsin law enforcement
It is a question raised many times by community members in the wake of officer involved shootings; why so many shots?
After a recent officer-involved shooting that left two people hurt along Milwaukee's lakefront, CBS 58 News went to the Dean of Criminal Justice at Waukesha County Technical College for a better understanding of use of force training.
"We have standards in the state that we didn't have before," explained Brian Dorow who is not involved in the Bradford Beach officer-involved investigation. "We train and the general public has a hard time with it. Why do you have to shoot person in head in what we call the upper hydraulics. Your sternum up. Because it ceases all movement."
Dorow says the situation is not officially safe until the suspect's hand are immobilized and the person is in handcuffs.
