Female Canadian police officer shows it's possible to arrest an armed suspect without shooting him

Waterloo Regional Police Chief Bryan Larkin tells 570 News the video demonstrates the unpredictability of policing.

“Prior to the video starting, what is not seen is obviously the officer disarms the individual, uses tactical communication…There’s a resistance, an unwillingness to be handcuffed and the officer does not resort to any other use of force or tools, uses different techniques to try deescalate and ends up grounding the individual.”

Larkin adds it’s a reminder of the challenges police officers face every single day. [via]
