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 have a use of force working group which includes representatives from the force's Independent Advisory Groups, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), engagement team and equality and diversity officers.
Force representatives also sit on the National Use of Force board.
All recorded use of force is checked by a supervisor, and quarterly data sets are compiled for each local policing area, where we have a senior officer single-point-of-contact (SPOC) who is responsible for reviewing complaints, disproportionality, and scrutinising officer and team performance around use of force.
This information is discussed at local quarterly meetings involving local IAG representation, and any issues arising are reported back into the force working group.
