POLICING TODAY
POLICING TODAY
THE PROBLEM
American police are rethinking their training, procedures and non-lethal tools, specifically to handle encounters with the mentally ill.
The Police Executive Research Forum, an independent research organization devoted to improving policing, reports that handling encounters with the mentally ill is a national crisis.
A Washington Post investigation tracking all fatal shootings by the police in 2015 found that nearly a quarter of the incidents involve a person who was mentally unstable.
Pew Research Center (2017) reports the rapid increase of significant fear among police about their safety and about carrying out everyday policing Use of force by law enforcement continues to be controversial and more public, while officers are concerned they will be the next viral video.
Due to issues surrounding overuse and/or misuse, CEW’s are increasingly controversial. Subjects increasingly ignore commands escalating situations making hands-on restraint more dangerous. There are limited options for remote restraint – officers resort to combat or potentially injurious less lethal and/or lethal force. Existing less lethal devices rely on “pain compliance” resulting in probability of injury, increased aggression and complicated apprehension.
