Using force reasonably and appropriately

Our police officers are selected and trained to exert authority and restore order to situations without the use of force, as far as possible.  However, for our police to keep communities safe, there will be occasions when it is necessary for officers to use reasonable and proportionate force.  Sometimes that force will be needed to protect the wider community.  Occasionally force may even be necessary to ensure a person does not cause significant harm to themselves.  Typically, any decision an officer makes about the use of force will involve a fine judgement about the balance of harm and risk.
