Tensing responded to a shoplifter near the intersection of Jefferson and Charlton on June 17 where he used force but did not draw his firearm, according to documents. On July 3, Tensing used force on a wanted person but again did not draw his gun.
The former officer was involved in two incidents where at least one UCPD officer did display a firearm, but an UC spokesperson said Tensing was not necessarily the officer that drew a firearm.
UCPD files more use of force reports than some departments, according to UCPD Public Information Officer, Michelle Ralston. Ralston said some departments do not file use of force reports for officers drawing a firearm during an incident.
