What are police policies? | This Lancaster County policy department lets its citizens know how the policies are developed — posts the policies including its policies on deescalation and continuum of force. It’s a shame not all jurisdictions are not so forthcoming with their department’s policies.
“‘State-sanctioned violence’ | US police fail to meet basic human rights standards”
– The Guardian –
“Police in America’s biggest cities are failing to meet even the most basic international human rights standards governing the use of lethal force, a new study from the University of Chicago has found.
“Researchers in the university’s law school put the lethal use-of-force policies of police in the 20 largest US cities under the microscope. They found not a single police department was operating under guidelines that are compliant with the minimum standards laid out under international human rights laws.”

LNP – Always Lancaster letter to-the-editor today | This letter writer may be on to something; in his letter he asks:

“We might replace local, state and federal nightmares with small, caring community action councils. Don’t you feel better already?”

We goofed. | This email from a reader points out our mistake in a recent post. We are sincerely grateful for the reader’s “catch” and we apologize for having missed the Sunday report. Our two-day graphic on Monday aggregated two days of reporting and gave an incorrect and inadvertent “spike” in cases.
“Hello – first, thanks for running the daily updates on the Trump Coronavirus numbers. They are quite helpful because it’s easier to get your update quickly than it is to go to the PA Health Department’s website to see the daily numbers.
If so, that suggests that we are thankfully still on the downward trend here in PA and haven’t had an alarming one-day spike back to almost 1,000 the way your chart from today suggests.
Or am I missing something? Could you please clarify?
Anyway, thanks in advance for any clarification you may be able to offer and for your public service of updating this data daily!”
