The chance to submit public comments on proposed revisions to the Phoenix Police Department’s use of force policy goes through June 23.

Officials say earlier feedback means there are now dozens of proposed changes, such as when officers can and can’t use violence and at what level.

Phoenix police are also seeking in-person comments during a 6 p.m. Monday meeting at the Deer Valley Community Center.
