Cancelled: Discussion Groups: Police Use of Force Study @ Riderwood

This Discussion Group has been cancelled.

This study is a continuation of the previous fact sheet by LWVMC, “A Study Of Civilian Oversight Of Law Enforcement And Police Accountability,” (December 2022).[1] This study examines use of force policies and practices by police departments in Montgomery County, Maryland, and across the United States. It also considers recommendations for police training and disciplinary policies for using force in law enforcement interactions with the public, as well as excessive use of force incidents. This study also examines the legal doctrine of qualified immunity as it is granted to U.S. law enforcement officials by the courts, and how this application affects police accountable efforts for excessive use of force.
