THE NEED FOR CHANGE
CITIZENS PER YEAR HAVE CONTACT WITH POLICE WHERE FORCE IS USED
OF THOSE IN A FORCE INCIDENT FELT POLICE ACTED INAPPROPRIATELY
OF CITIZENS FELT FORCE WAS EXCESSIVE WHEN USED
It is time to reverse the trend of perception by reinforcing our communities’ trust in law enforcement through expert and specialized training and projecting that positive change to the media. A 2007 study in Criminal Justice and Behavior, “Police Education, Experience and the Use of Force,” found that officers with more experience and education may be less likely to use force, while a review of case studies suggests that specific training programs and accountability structures can reduce the use of violence by police departments. Enter ILSEP.
