Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $249,982)

Currently, law enforcement leaders have no ability to compare the range of potential medical outcomes from the use of less-lethal devices. This project collects existing medical outcome data on the use of less-lethal devices such as TASERs, "plastic bullets," Pepper spray, and batons. Wayne State will develop and maintain a database of the medical outcomes of police use of force that will inform law enforcement leaders and policymakers in a manner that can readily impact the procurement, policy, and use implications of less-lethal devices.
