My Use of Force Reporting Guide/Checklist can be found by clicking here. It is a combination of information found in the AELE Use of Force Report Writing Guide and information found in other places. The checklist is based on the specific requirements of NOPD Chapters 1.3 and 1.3.6. This guide should be helpful and useful for law enforcement officers regardless of employer. Again, officers should ensure that the checklist accurately reflects their department’s requirements. My discussion of NOPD Chapter 1.3 can be found here.
The Use of Force Reporting Guide/Checklist can also be found in the FOP CCL2 mobile app available for both iOS and Android devices for easy access on the road. The iOS version can be found in the Apple App Store and the Android version can be found in the Google Play Store. The Use of Force Reporting Guide/Checklist can be found in the Use of Force section. You can click on the banner below to find the app. A larger, higher quality version of the Use of Force Reporting Guide/Checklist can be found here.
