Because police officers are so vital to a well-functioning society, people rightly expect that they will receive proper training to cover a variety of situations. Cops need to be able to know what to do in particular scenarios in order to handle such situations as smoothly as possible. In Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, the training might be a little lax, according to reports.
The Pittsburg District Attorney Steve Zappala has suggested that while the East Pittsburg Police Department is not criminally liable for anything that may have happened recently, the fact that they do not give their officers policies and guidelines for many scenarios as part of their training could result in several civil suits being levied against them. Reports about this first came up when police officers were at the site of an accident and admitted to reporters they had no policies in place to deal with the accident.
