Use of Force Analysis

Elgin Police Department policy requires all officers to report any use or show of force on an approved department form. The data from the response to resistance forms are entered into a database and analyzed each year. Each form, along with the associated reports and videos, are reviewed through the chain of command to ensure the force was within policy. A Use of Force committee comprised of a diverse group of officers from various divisions also reviews incidents to make recommendations on training and policy each year.
