Are Ferndale Police officers required to give a verbal warning to civilians before drawing their weapon or using excessive force?

This depends on the situation. In most cases, yes, if they are able to.

A good example: an officer is searching a dark yard for a suspect accused of committing a violent crime. The officer likely will have a weapon drawn as a means of protection without announcing that he or she is doing so. Once the suspect is located, the officer will announce themselves and their weapon and deliver commands.
