IACP Releases Report on Use of Force

Posted on June 28, 2012

The IACP and the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) office
convened a use-of-force symposium that brought together law enforcement
professionals, use-of-force experts, and use-of-force researchers. The
resulting report, Emerging Use of Force Issues: Balancing Public and
Officer Safety, provides suggested actions that can be taken at both the
national and local levels to address these issues.

.

The use of force by law enforcement officers has continuously been a
controversial topic, often resulting in false perceptions by the public,
particularly the concern that police use force at a relatively high level.
Statistical research shows just the opposite: Police use force with
constant and careful discretion. In 2008, the Bureau of Justice Statistics
completed a study that found that of the 40 million persons who had
contact with police, only 1.9 percent of the respondents reported the use
or the threat of force at least once during these contacts. Unfortunately,
media depictions continue to create the perception that use or threat of
force by the police is greater than it actually is. The IACP/COPS report
addresses this concern and other significant force policy issues,
including the following:

.

     Current use-of-force issues and concerns of law enforcement leaders

     Use-of-force policy and training advancement over the past five years

     Recent use-of-force incidents or issues that have affected law
  enforcement approach

     Use-of-force litigation and risk management from a local agency
  perspective

     New and emerging research on use of force at the university and law
  enforcement levels

     Concerns about use of force that merit further exploration and
  investigation
