Use-of-force policy tightened for Border Patrol


Following months of mounting public pressure, CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske on Friday also released an uncensored, scathing report on the agency's prior use-of-force policies. That report, kept secret for 15 months, revealed that in at least two use-of-force deaths since 2010, agents violated CBP policies. The report also states that investigations into use of deadly force often lacked "diligence."

Kerlikowske also released CBP's new use-of-force handbook, which includes many — though not all — of the changes called for in the critical report.
