As Sheriff, I have followed through on my promise to create a Use of Force Review Board. The Administrative Review Team (ART) conducts parallel investigations into use of force incidents to identify policy or training issues. The Administrative Review Team has the authority to refer violations to the Internal Investigations Unit for additional oversight. A thorough examination of these incidents is necessary to evaluate if they were avoidable and assess the need for additional training to prevent future incidents. This unit ensures that the Sheriff’s Office learns from use of force incidents and that mistakes are not repeated.
