Retired Assistant Police Commissioner, Clinton Conway, has expressed concern over the rising use of force within the police force following the fatal shooting of a man in Mahaicony on Thursday.

According to Conway, the shooting, which occurred during an altercation between the victim and police officers, indicates a wider problem within the force. “The use of force has gone through the roof,” Conway said in a statement. “We cannot continue to rely on lethal force as a first resort.”

Conway called for greater accountability and transparency within the police force, arguing that excessive force undermines the trust and confidence of the public. He also called for stricter guidelines for using force and more emphasis on non-lethal options such as pepper spray and tasers. Tiana Cole reports
