WA Initiative 940: More Training For Police To De-Escalate Tense Situations

Yes on Initiative 940

Doug Nadvornick talks with Monisha Harrell from Equal Rights Washington about her support for Initiative 940.

The ballot title for Washington Initative 940 reads: "This measure would require law enforcement to receive violence de-escalation, mental-health, and first-aid training, and provide first-aid; and change standards for use of deadly force, adding a "good faith" standard and independent investigation."

We talked about 940 with proponent Monisha Harrell and opponent Mike Solan.
