HEIGHTS – Three police command officers recently attended a workshop that provided a look at what some of police work’s most prevalent issues will look like in the future.

Police Chief Lee Gavin and Capt. Daniel Voltattorni and Capt. Michael Petri attended the March 1 “Analysis of the Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing” workshop which was hosted by the Livonia Police Department.

The workshop, conducted by attorney Eric Daigle, covered such topics as “The Ferguson Effect — Constitutional and Effective Policing,” “Body Cameras,” “Procedural Justice” and “Managing Use of Force Investigations with the Department of Justice.”

“Ongoing training is a top priority for our department” Gavin said. “It is vitally important that we take advantage of resources like this to help our officers stay abreast of the latest trends in public safety.”
