The Arlington County Police Department released an in-depth review of the force’s policies and procedures this week. Now, the department is considering more than 100 recommendations to implement.

The county’s Policing Practices Group, a county-appointed 15-member committee, partnered with Hillard Heintze, an outside public safety consulting firm, to complete the review.

They probed a host of policies, including the use of force, training methods and data collection.

The review team found that while departmental procedures are generally sound, some practices need improvement.

The study suggests providing more bias training, revamping instructions about the dangers of car chases, and effectively using data gathered by officers to gauge overall service performance.

The report lists more than 100 recommendations for the police department.
