Janesville Police Chief David Moore is denouncing the actions of Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of a man in their custody. Moore calls the actions criminal and describes the incident as horrific and unimaginable. He says his department has been working for a decade to train officers with the goal of avoiding such an incident. He says measures include implicit bias and de-escalation training, body worn cameras, and a thorough citizen complaint process. Moore also applauds the non-violent nature of a protest held in Janesville Sunday, saying officers were there to support citizens rights to free speech.
