Baldwin Says Progress Being Made in Talks With Police
RENTON (AP) — Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin says he's had substantive talks with members of law enforcement and Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson after Baldwin's call for a review of training tactics used by police.
Baldwin first spoke out three weeks ago following police shootings in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At that time, Baldwin called for all 50 state attorneys general to review law enforcement training policies.
Since then, Baldwin has had talks with law enforcement in the Seattle area in the effort to gather information that he hopes can change how police officers are trained.
Baldwin has become a focal point in the conversation regarding interactions with police. He appeared on two different national television shows last week during the Seahawks' bye after first making his request last month. The Seattle Police Department confirmed to The Seattle Times last week that some of its personnel has met with Baldwin.
