Changes In Use Of Force Policies

1.The standards related to the use of force by law enforcement officers are changing.  Modern sensitivities to how force is applied, the decision making process of who to use force against, and new technology are reshaping use of force policies.  The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), in Guiding Principles for Use of Force, has published 30 recommendations for changing use of force policies (see attached link).  Examine these 30 recommendations, and discuss two of the recommendations that you feel are most important in changing use of force policies.
