sing the final version of the department's new use of deadly force policy.
The new policy announced on Wednesday comes in the wake of the release of a video showing a white officer fatally shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald. The video sparked public outrage and led to a U.S. Justice Department report that was critical of the department's use of excessive force.
The final policy closely resembles the draft Johnson released in March that revised a previous draft that rank-and-file police officers complained was too restrictive. Still, it's more restrictive than the policy that's been in place for years.
Officers will be required to undergo de-escalation training. The policy also puts in place new restrictions on when officers may shoot a fleeing crime suspect.
