Annual Use of Force Reports
In order to comply with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA), each accredited law enforcement agency must perform an internal Use of Force analysis (CALEA 1.3.13). The analysis is systematically structured to identify any patterns or trends.
Analysis should reveal patterns or trends that could predict or could indicate the need for an increase in Use of Force training, equipment purchases or upgrade and/or the necessity for policy modification. The below Use of Force reports completed by the Internal Affairs Unit provides a critical process in reviewing departmental policies and procedures. This analysis also provides a process for improvement in our policy language, records management system, capturing additional data in offenses and supervisor oversight in Use of Force incidents.
