Your police department's policy on use of force

A policing agency’s use of force is supposed to be governed by its policy. There are a few elements that could help reduce police violence when they’re included explicitly in a police department’s use of force policy.

Figure out where your local police department is falling short by looking at the use of force policy. Start by requesting it.

Submit your local policing agency or city and state below, and MuckRock will file a request for the applicable use of force policy.

We’ll submit a request for this record on your behalf. Just let us know where we should ask.
