NJ .com: How we built the largest database of police force in N.J. history

NJ .com: How we built the largest database of police force in N.J. history. “In the 17 years since the Attorney General’s Office first required police to report when they use force, in hopes of identifying problematic officers, departments and trends, the system has been virtually ignored. It took a landmark New Jersey Supreme Court ruling 16 months ago to make these reports fully available to the public. To produce The Force Report, NJ Advance Media filed 506 public records requests and collected 72,607 use-of-force forms covering 2012 through 2016.”
