The international legal framework for use of force in law enforcement

The Basic Principles of the Use of Force and Firearms (BPUFF) reflect the basic standard that law enforcement officials should in carrying out their duty, as far as possible, apply non-violent means before resorting to the use of force and firearms. They define a set of parameters within which law enforcement officials may use force and firearms when carrying out their functions, and prohibit the use of force that does not comply with these parameters and which therefore is unlawful, arbitrary or excessive.
