what people are saying about the police force analysis system℠
“This type of tool is a massive leap forward in developing better use of force policies and procedures. It gives our officers valuable feedback to adjust or reinforce their tactics and training and provides the public accurate data about the state of policing in San Jose.” Paul Kelly, President of the San Jose Police Officers’ Association
“It’s not a difficult system for people to comprehend; it’s very user-friendly. There’s terrific value in it. Just from the aspect of being able to evaluate your level of service. It allows us to identify an issue that’s coming up sooner before it becomes something bigger. It also reinforces that my officers are doing their jobs correctly when the use of force is used properly. My experience has been extremely positive and very beneficial. I think this type of technology is great.” Kitsap Business Journal
Chief Rudy Escalante (ret.)
“The most comprehensive police force analysis system that I’ve seen was recently rolled out. The system was conceived by a consulting group of veteran police chiefs and attorneys with extensive experience in all realms of policing and police legal advising and litigation, with the unique contribution of a data analysis scientist who formerly specialized in the development and analysis of national police data for the Bureau of Justice Statistics. The Police Force Analysis System offers superior risk management tools for police agencies and for those who insure and defend them.” PoliceOne.com
The Police Force Analysis System, is a new software program that collects use-of-force data, analyzes the numbers based on a wide range of factors, and assigns easy-to-interpret scores that characterize the extent to which each use of force was legally justifiable. The resulting information can do much more than increase transparency. The software, developed by retired law enforcement professionals, informs and educates leaders—both in police departments and beyond—in ways that can shape everything from budgets to policy.
