Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $647,387)

The proposed research project will use multiple methods to provide a broad and comprehensive evaluation of use of force outcomes. Included within its scope will be a national survey of law enforcement agencies' less lethal technologies, policies, training, and usages; a multi-site evaluation (20 to 25 agencies) of how organizational-level factors influence force outcomes (e.g., injuries, nature and incidence of force); a case study analysis that uses force data from two large law enforcement agencies to examine incident-level predictors of force outcomes; a time-series analysis of how the adoption of conducted energy devices (CEDs) may impact outcomes; and an in-depth review of less lethal force decision-making using interviews with officers and subjects involved in use of force encounters.
