CPD to Host Special Presentation About Understanding Police Use of Force

Carmel Police Department Chief Jim Barlow and Carmel City Councilor Sue Finkam will host a special presentation to help citizens better understand police use of force. Discussion topics will include CPD’s use of force policy, use of force training, including de-escalation training, how use of force incidents are reported, and use of force reality versus myth. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in scenarios, ask questions, provide comments and discuss any concerns.

The presentation will be on Thursday, August 6, 2020, from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
The presentation will be limited to 20 attendees. It is anticipated the presentation will be offered again at a future date yet to be determined.
Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, attendees must be at least 18 years old.

Anyone that would like to attend the presentation on August 6 or be notified about future opportunities to attend may complete a form here.
Please contact Major Dave Strong via e-mail at with any questions about the special presentation.
