MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Police Department is seeking public opinion when it comes to their reasonable use of force techniques.

The department is asking the citizens of Memphis to take an 8-minute survey in order to help them understand the expectations of those they have sworn to protect.

“Providing this survey to the citizens of Memphis is a proactive measure to allow civilians an opportunity to experience first-hand what our officers face on a daily basis. It further allows us, as a law enforcement agency to understand what the public perceives to be reasonable force used by an officer,” said Director Michael Rallings.
