Every police officer faces the likely possibility of confronting a violent, resisting suspect that will require the officer to use force. The failure to accurately and comprehensively document such an incident could end an officer's career. Force Reporting for Every Cop provides police officers with the tools they need to prepare comprehensive use-of-force reports that will stand up in court and internal investigations. This book includes detailed background information that will increase the level and quality of an officer's reporting, as well as a thorough explanation of the documentation required to prove proper field conduct.
