Police Use Of Force Project

Your DGB for today is to disseminate the findings of the Police Use Of Force Project.

In particular, police departments with more restrictive use of force policies enjoy a lower rate of assault on officers, including fewer officers being killed in the line of duty. More statistics and analysis can be found on their website, but DGB thinks this particular one has broad and bipartisan appeal. Share with your social media circle, use it in debate, bring it up over dinner.

 

 

As it turns out, “blue lives matter” and ending police violence aren’t divergent goals. More policies to protect and preserve life benefit all lives and all communities.
