Police Use of Force Guidelines


The use of force is a much debated topic in the world of law enforcement, both among law enforcement officers and the general public. While many people have the perception that police officers use force arbitrarily, there are general standards that govern the use of force which all officers must adhere to. Individual discretion and circumstance are often pitted against such guidelines as the use of force continuum, which provides a general outline for the progression of force as it relates to the actions of a suspect. This guide will cover the basic guidelines and considerations related to the use of force in law enforcement.
