Non deadly and deadly force

Each officer’s ability to use non-deadly and deadly force is regulated by local and federal requirements. In this individual work, you will examine police use of force from a specific, local perspective. 

To begin this assignment, conduct research on the laws in your state that specify what police can and cannot do in terms of force.

  • List the various types of force officers can use in your state, describing the pros and cons of each.
  • Identify any areas you think are lacking or excessive, and list the reasoning for your claims.
