I believe police should receive an extended training duration and be put to more legal scrutiny when they drastically “slip” up so that they do not forget what they are protecting and how to properly do so accordingly. Military police (MP) and the FBI agents that work currently had to partake in approximately 20 weeks of training each. For example, MPs after Basic head to AIT for 20 weeks to receive further training. I also believe that the entrance requirements should be more rigorous so that less people can become police officers but the ones who are officers are good officers i.e through psych evaluations periodically. Police should also receive more extensive training on restraining people of interest, more punishments on a neglectful officer who fails to do his job or oversteps, more extensive legal training regarding ones rights. 96% of killings by police from 2013-2019 have not resulted in officers being charged with a crime; there need to be more accountability of officers, they are not above the law. Also those currently working as police should have to receive on job training to make up the difference. This idea I believe could be a solution to weening out poorly trained officers and abusive officers by both training them more than the 7 weeks required and exposing them to more strenuous legalities as MPs are since they are a force for the people by the people and should not use the job as a place to “bully” those same people. Adopt All Possible Proven Solutions. Require Officers to use all other means before shooting, Require all uses of force to be reported, ban strangle and chokeholds, require officers to fulfill the duty of intervening if another officer uses excessive force and if they do not charge them as an accessory to their crime or receive equal punishment. Don't ignore the signs of a bad cop, do not allow for them to get away with murder, pay attention to the complaints placed onto the officer, don't allow for the sour apple poison the bunch. We are all human and are the people and to the officers who took an oath to protect the people do not infringe on our rights.
