ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – State Attorney Aramis Ayala announced a new policy in how her office will handle law enforcement use of force cases in Orange and Osceola counties.
The decision was prompted by a deadly officer-involved shooting at the Colonial Plaza in 2018.
An Orlando police officer was later indicted for manslaughter.
Ayala dropped the charge a week after his arrest.
This prompted Ayala to start a procedure for handling law enforcement use of force cases.
A team will review the cases before Ayala makes a final decision.
She plans to have quarterly publications to outline the number of cases reviewed and cases cleared.
