Police Use of Force

Police are charged with maintaining order and keeping people safe. In fulfilling those duties, they will sometimes need to use force on behalf of the state to protect the public and themselves form harm. As a result of a review of police use of force data, a commitment was made at Chief Constable Council for all forces to collate and publish data on use of force.  This commitment aims to enhance the evidence base, strengthen our model of policing by consent, and demonstrate legitimacy of our tactics and robustness of our monitoring processes. The table below shows the record level data for uses of force by Cleveland Police by Quarter.
