Welcome into the first of a three part series KXEO News is doing on policing in your community.
This week we will talk with local police agencies about use of force, choke holds and the training they receive.
Major Brice Mesko with Mexico Public Safety says they do not train officers to use neck restraints when taking people into custody.
Mesko says how use of force is tracked differs at law enforcement agencies.
Mesko says police reform is a tough and deep topic and as a public safety department they will keep evaluating and continue to get better at what they do.
Tune into AM 1340 KXEO for part 2 of this special series tomorrow morning at 6:00, when Audrain County Sheriff Matt Oller talks about use of force and how police reform may impact his department.
