Abstract

The issue facing the police departments nationwide is the on-going issue of police use of force. Many Law enforcement agencies have come under scrutiny for their use of force practices. Police agencies are facing challenges in community policing due to the issues of use of force and the lack of training in deescalation techniques used by law enforcement personnel. The lack of community policing has impacted law enforcement because the public generally sees interactions with officers as not positive, lacking in an overall partnership with the community, and officer’s inability to solve problems without the use of force. I-940 is a new policy that has not been fully implemented into law enforcement agencies. There is currently no statistic data proving the usefulness of I-940. The data collected is from interviews of policing agencies across Washington State and the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center.
