This site is a beta, which means it's a work in progress and we'll be adding more to it over the next few weeks. Your feedback helps us make things better, so please let us know what you think.
We are committed to being an open and transparent force and this data is published to provide an insight into what being a police officer involves and the challenges they deal with.
Officers are trained to use force proportionately, lawfully and only when absolutely necessary. The information published will help improve the understanding of use of force and will help shape the tactics used and the training of officers.
This is the early stages of data collation and it would be inaccurate to compare one force to another until a consistency in recording and publications is established.
Our priority is to keep people safe and put victims at the heart of what we do.
If you require any further information about our use of force data then please request information about the police.
