DC Cops Learning to Stop Peer Excessive Force

Project A.B.L.E. Teaches D.C. Officers To Intervene

(Washington, DC) — A new initiative is teaching D.C. officers to intervene when they see a peer using excessive force. Jonathan Aronie who is leading the training says the Active Bystander for Law Enforcement Project is aiming to prevent harm or death to people in custody like what happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis. Project A.B.L.E. will teach officers how to be an active bystander and stop misconduct. Around three dozen law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. have signed up to take part in the free training.
