Abstract

This chapter seeks to examine all 820 incidents involving the use of TASER CEWs by police officers in the New York City Police Department (NYPD) over 6.5-year period, January 1, 2002 through May 15, 2007. Drawing from police reports of incidents in which an officer used the CEW, the chapter seeks to accomplish several objectives: (1) to track the prevalence of CEW use over time in the study site; (2) to describe the typical situations in which the weapon is used; (3) to examine the demographic and behavioral characteristics of police officers and suspects involved; (4) to assess the effectiveness of the device; and (5) to investigate whether it is used in compliance with departmental guidelines.
