Senate Bill 111 (Deadly Use of Force Plan) requires the County to provide outreach/education to the community. This year, the District Attorney and other local law enforcement agencies have produced a video that provides important details regarding officer-involved shootings and the process used to investigate them.
The video includes a series of segments designed to debunk common myths and misconceptions, most of which are addressed by national and regional experts, including Dr. Bill Lewinski of Force Science Research, Dr. Alexis Artwohl, Eugene Police Officer Joe Kidd, District Attorney Alex Gardner, and Sgt. Alan Gilbert of Oregon State Police.
