Most states spotty on reporting police use of force data
from NBC News
The Department of Justice's ambitious pilot program to collect data on how many people police officers shoot or kill each year hinges on the voluntary participation by states and law enforcement departments. It's a risky gambit given states' historical reluctance to share such information, criminal justice experts say. And absent that data, federal officials have absolutely no idea how many people officers in the 18,000 police agencies across the country injure through excessive "use-of-force."
