Use of Force Policy Project

As part of our collaboration with Campaign Zero, MuckRock requested use of force policies from the largest police departments in the country.

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 info@muckrock.com.
