GRPD task force releases 38 recommendations

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A task force put together to review the policies and procedures of Grand Rapids Police Department has finished its work.

The task force, which was made up of officers and members of the community who met once a month for a year, has released 38 recommendations.

But some of them are being met with pushback from Grand Rapids Police Chief David Rahinsky, who told commissioners Tuesday morning that his department doesn't have enough manpower to accomplish what's being asked of them in the report.

Rahinsky presented the recommendations and his response to them at a city commission meeting.

Among the most-talked about recommendations were that GRPD revise its youth policy, something that was created after incidents that led to criticism of how officers worked with kids.
