Question and answer
Q: How have less-lethel weapons helped law enforcement and reduce injury?
A: Advances in less-lethal technology offer the promise of more effective control over resistive suspects with fewer serious injuries. Pepper spray was among the first of these newer, less-lethal weapons to achieve widespread adoption by police forces. [ More recently, conducted energy devices (CEDs), such as the Taser, have become popular. More than 11,000 American law enforcement agencies use
CEDs, but their use has not been without controversy. Organizations such as Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union have questioned whether CEDs can be used safely, and whether they contribute to civilian injuries and incustody deaths. Policymakers and law enforcement officials want to know whether CEDs and other less-lethal weaponry are safe and effective, and how police should use them. ]
