The New Bedford Commission on Police Use of Force Policies has released a 60- day Report, which provides an overview of its activity from July and August. The Commission was recently extended for another 30 days.

Public Safety Committee Chairman and Councillor Brian Gomes, who oversees the Commission, says he is optimistic the report provides answers to many of the questions submitted to the Commission in August. “Now we hope that the public will join us in reviewing the three policies and providing additional feedback before our next public meeting.” A date for that meeting has not yet been announced.

Following are the policies for review:

12-01: Use of Deadly Force
12-02: Use of Less Lethal Force
12:03: Electronic Control Weapons
