Law Enforcement Use Of Force Incidents

This bill requires that the Department of Justice publish an annual report on law enforcement use of force incidents, including incidents where there was a shooting, where a firearm was discharged in the direction of a person (even if there was no injury), and where other serious bodily harm resulted from the incident. The bill requires certain demographic information to be collected about each such incident, and reported annually by DOJ on its website. The bill also makes an initial appropriation to DOJ of $100,000 to cover data collection costs, and an additional $100,000 annually that DOJ must use to reimburse local law enforcement agencies for data collection and reporting costs.
