UWPD Use of Force Data

Each quarter, UWPD analyzes use of force (also called “response to resistance”), because encountering some type of resistance from the person is what causes the officer to use force. It is vital to review these responses to resistance to identify potential areas for improvement and areas in which enhanced training or policy adaptations are needed.

The links below take you to quarterly charts that describe incidents of persons resisting officers. The charts provide a racial breakdown of persons resisting officers, the types of force used, and the time of day when these incidents occurred.
