“Warrior-style” training is a type of training that takes a fear-based approach to policing that prioritizes officer safety over community safety by conditioning trainees to view all encounters as inherently dangerous. The philosophy behind this training being that police officers should be trained to kill with less hesitation.

“Fear-based trainings violate the values at the very heart of community policing. When you’re conditioned to believe that every person encountered poses a threat to your existence, you simply cannot be expected to build meaningful relationships with those same people” said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.

We propose a federal ban on “warrior-style” training for all current and future law enforcement officers. This ban would decrease the friction and unnecessary conflicts between officers and the communities they’re trained to protect.

Please join me in taking a step to protecting the future of this nation.
