Some police departments say publicizing use-of-force policies builds trust. Others say the public can’t be trusted | PA Post

Last month, Columbia Borough Councilwoman Sharon Lintner said the city's mayor, attorney and chief of police all told her the policy wasn't eligible for public disclosure under the state's Right to Know Act exemptions.

"As an elected official, I feel like I have an obligation to know policies," said Lintner. "There's nothing complex about reading through it. So I'm not sure why they are so reluctant to release it."
