Emerging Use of Force Issues: Balancing Public and Officer Safety

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in partnership with the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) held a symposium that focused on police use of force. The primary goal of the meeting was to achieve consensus surrounding core use of force issues, identifying those topics of particular urgency, and proposing effective strategies that respond to the most critical areas of concern. This publication presents a summary of discussions that took place during the Use of Force Symposium, key findings identified by the group, and recommendations for further action.
