Reporting, monitoring and review

Part V of the resource book looks at accountability in the use of force and firearms in law enforcement. The key to accountability is transparency: it has to be known when law enforcement officials resorted to the use of force, in which circumstances and why. Chapter 10 examines the procedures developed by law enforcement agencies to report the use of force and firearms, as well as relevant monitoring and reporting mechanisms.
