Update September 2013

This summer, PPB's Use of Force Inspector published the second quarterly Use of Force Data Summary Report. This report relates to items 74-76 in the City's agreement with the US Department of Justice.

In comparing this quarter to the same time period in 2012, there is a significant decrease in the amount of Force Data Summary Reports (FDCR) submitted (down almost 30%) despite a slight increase in calls for service (0.75%) during the same period. FDCR's are the forms that must be submitted after every qualifying use of force in the field.

Take a look at the data and the summary here and contact us with questions or comments.
