Abridged Summary Of Categorical Use Of Force Incident
And Findings By The Los Angeles Board Of Police Commissioners
Following a historic Police Commission decision in 2005, abridged summaries of Categorical Use of Force incidents are now readily available on the Department's web site. The following summaries are prepared by the Office of the Inspector General and include a summary of the incident and a review of the Police Commission's findings.
Providing unprecedented information to the public, yet still respecting personnel issues, the reports do not include the names of the involved officers. Summaries will be available for all incidents adjudicated by the Board of Police Commissioners after January 1, 2006.
Note: This page, and Use of Force Incidents and Findings, can temporarily be accessed directly from this web site's home page Special Feature box. Articles for the Special Feature are periodically changed. However, Use of Force Incidents and Findings can always be accessed by clicking on the Police Commission link on the home page and then scrolling down and selecting the "Summary of Use of Force Incidents" link.
