Police Commissioner William Bratton has already said he wants to review how officers are trained in the use of force, and possibly retrain every member of the NYPD.

Now, he's sending six officers to Los Angeles to learn from police officers there.

Bratton tells the Daily News the officers will spend at least three days next week training with the LAPD.

Those officers, according to Bratton, will be part of a larger steering committee aimed at helping retrain officers on how to deal with incidents where force is needed.

The LAPD spent ten years under a federal consent decree specifically focused on changing the way they used force.

Bratton implemented several of the recommended changes himself while he was the chief there from 2002 to 2009.
