The Police Commissioner has called on his officers to ignore the outside comments regarding the use of the firearms, and do what they are trained to do.
He was responding to a statement from the Law Association regarding his ‘one shot one kill’ policy.
The Top Cop believes the continuous statements by those with little law enforcement training, as well as little or no interaction with the use of a firearm may cause an officer to hesitate when confronted with hostile fire.
While the Law Association advised against the blanket use of deadly force, Mr. Griffith assures this is not the case.
The Commissioner says bodies versed and qualified in the field, including the Police Social and Welfare Association, PCA, Police Heads and Firearm Experts have backed his policy.
