Local police department posts statistics on use of force by race

Posted: Updated:
BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

In the wake of national protests over police-involved shootings, a local department says it wants to build trust through transparency.

The Bay City Police Department is now sharing its statistics on the use of force broken down by race. The numbers were posted on the department’s Facebook page, but it has a skeptical public to win over.

“I don’t think it’ll make much of a difference,” said one man.

“I don’t think that it’s trying to be more honest with the public. I think the public…these kind of stats are all over the internet. You find it all the time,” said another man.

The department promises regular postings.
