  • USE OF FORCE

    State law authorizes police officers to use force in the performance of their duties. The State law also requires that no more force be used than is necessary or reasonable to accomplish a lawful task. To track and evaluate when and how Keene Police Officers use force a use of force report is completed whenever force is used by an on-duty police officer and an annual review and analysis of all such reports is conducted each calendar year. This is done to evaluate our field performance, compliance with law and policy and to identify trends or training needs that may be missed when looking at use of force incidents individually.
