Anchorage Police and Deadly Force

By | August 24, 2012

When an APD officer killed a man threatening him with a stick, community members began asking how and when deadly force is appropriate in our community. Anchorage  Chief Mark Mew joins host Charles Wohlforth, to talk about how our officers do their work, and when they can make the decision to take a life. What options exist for less lethal means? And how can tragedies be avoided in the future?
