But the scenario of criminals deliberately pushing police officers’ boundaries to trigger unnecessary use of force is ludicrous, said Arthur Rizer, director of criminal justice research at the R Street Institute , a conservative-leaning research organization based in Washington, D.C.
“It is outrageous behavior by police departments to not already have this on their websites,” he said.
Rizer – a former police officer and federal prosecutor – also mentioned that not publishing use-of-force policies hinders elected officials’ ability to set policy.
“You cannot make good decisions without good data; garbage in, garbage out,” he said.
