VANCOUVER, Wa—Included in the updates, standards will be enhanced for the acceptable use of police dogs. Officers will be required to carry a flashlight other than the one mounted on guns. The changes are part of partnership with the city’s Community Task Force On Policing. That group has outlined 84 recommendations in a use of force report. Vancouver police have already set 34 of those recommendations in place. New bias and cultural awareness training is taking place.
Vancouver Police will have new Body cams by Spring of 2022.
