Washington Post: FBI may shut down police use-of-force database due to lack of police participation

Washington Post: FBI may shut down police use-of-force database due to lack of police participation. “In an attempt to create a definitive database on how often police officers use force on citizens, the FBI launched the National Use-of-Force Data Collection program in 2019, imploring police departments to submit details on every incident, not just fatal shootings. But the failure of police and federal agencies to send their data to the FBI puts the program in jeopardy of being shut down next year without ever releasing a single statistic, a new report by the Government Accountability Office says.”
