Sentencing study conf더킹카지노irms doubts police have as to if use-of-force policies are working; a third of cases are dismissed, no one filed charges
A new study by the National Coalition for Law Enforcement Accountability (NCLEA) has shown use-of-force policies often fail to protect people involved in shootings and other crime.
More than two-thirds of all use-of-force cases (64%) were dismissed, while about 60% were dismissed within a year, said the report, The Impact of Justice: How Officers Are Being Overcharged, Falsified or Dismissed for Using Force on the Streets in the United States of America.

“For the majority of the cases, there wasn’t a good outcome at trial,” NCLEA President and CEO Jody Martin said. “What we see is that, even when the police department is involved, sometimes the officers don’t get what they deserve.”
The report highlights that use-of-force policy does not serve to combat crimes, with officers rarely being prosecuted for their actions.
“We knew that as a community, our use-of-force was being misrepresented by the criminal justice system, and the police are doing their best to take advant더킹카지노age of that misreporting,” Martin said.
In some instances, officers who are wrongfully accused, dismissed or fail to file charges may be allowed to keep their jobs for years.
One in five people who die or seriously injure by using force in an officer-involved shooting get no help from justice, the NCLEA report found. Just over two-thirds of those who had been charged or who did not file charges received some form of discipline, although about one-third did not.
“This makes our nation’s streets an absolute tragedy waiting to happen,” Martin said. “It also serves as an opportunity to educate policy makers, to teach them about the importance of creating an atmosphere of trust that we are a police force.
“We need to be doing everything we can to improve that trust, to make it more credible.”
Nearly 3 million people are shot to death each year in the U.S. with no officers accused in those deaths, the most. The report, which was released Tuesday, included an additional 18% who received some type of punishment or a warning before facing trial or who were dismissed with no criminal charges.
At the same time, more than 20% of people killed by police, without a
