The manual was made available on a newly created FAQ list created by the Salinas Police Department on their website. For example, an SPD answer is given to the question: "All 3 of the people shot by police this year were Latinos. Are the police targeting Latinos?"

Lexipol is web based.

"Lexipol is America’s leading provider of defensible policies and training for public safety organizations, delivering our services through a unique, web-based development system. Lexipol offers state-specific policy manuals, regular policy updates and daily scenario based training against policy."
