The San Francisco Police Department reports that its use-of-force incidents have fallen by 30% since launching a series of policy changes following several officer-involved shootings that sparked tensions in the community.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, it's been nearly a full year since the last officer-involved shooting in the City by the Bay.

Chief Bill Scott said that he is pleased with the outcome of changes to training and policy that came about largely due to outcry over the shooting of Mario Woods in 2015. Woods was armed with a knife when officers opened fire, fatally wounding him.
