Use of Force by the Police: Overview of National and Local Data

Released this week by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), this report is the product of several national and local-level surveys on the use of force by police officers. Offered in six independent but interrelated chapters, the report explores what is and what is not known about the extent and nature of police use of force, the circumstances under which force is applied, and the difficulties in measuring the use of force, and suggests future paths for research in this area. The report is available in .pdf format in two parts or in text format.
