This city’s police officers are woefully deficient in training, especially in the high-liability areas of firearms, defensive tactics and pursuit driving.

Sarasota Police received less than one hour of firearms training each year, for the past several years, according to a report commissioned by City Manager Tom Barwin for new Police Chief Bernadette DiPino.

Poor or non-existent training, especially for the three areas most likely to result in lawsuits, was one of the major findings of the report.
