Our priorities and how we are doing
This section identifies strategies, plans and other performance measures used to identify our priorities and to indicate force performance.
Use of force
While we police by consent the force achieves this by helping to maintain order and keep people safe. To fulfil these duties, officers occasionally need to use force to protect both the public and themselves from harm.
The term ‘use of force’ covers a range of ways that suspects are detained, including unarmed defence tactics, co-operative handcuffing and both the drawing and use of CEDs (Conducted Energy Devices, otherwise known as Tasers).
