National Consensus Policy and Discussion Paper on Use of Force
The National Consensus Policy on Use of Force is a collaborative effort among 11 of the most significant law enforcement leadership and labor organizations in the United States. In valuing and preserving human life, the purpose of the policy is to provide law enforcement officers with guidelines for the use of less-lethal and deadly force. When reviewing the Urbana Police Department Use of Force Policy, this paper will serve as a foundational guide for best practices.
