Use of Force Policy Project
When a high-profile incident occurs, we’ll publish the relevant policy to provide context to the debate. In addition, we’ll be adding additional policies to this page as we receive them - if you’ve filed one, and you’d like it added, please let us know at email@example.com.
On June 5, MuckRock began an Assignment to help begin to better understand how use of force policies and data are being tracked by local law enforcement agencies. We’ve had nearly 100 submissions from all over the country, but you can still add yours.
Nationwide, there have been horrific instances of police force that avoid prosecution despite appearing closer to abuse or even murder rather than law enforcement. How is that allowed? We’ll help you find out.
As part of our collaboration with Campaign Zero, MuckRock requested use of force policies from the 100 largest police departments in the country, including St. Anthony PD. In the wake of the recent release of the dash cam video of the shooting of Philando Castile, we wanted to give you a chance to read the policy yourself.
