Hi, the data I requested is not available via the link you sent. The link includes use of force data (not the firearms discharges reports, but all uses of force) for only 2016-17. It does not include data for 2014 and 2015 as requested. It also does not include information on use of force complaints and the number sustained for any of the years. Please send the requested data.

Thanks,

Sam
