Posted on June 02, 2014 by Kathryn N. Karam

On May 30, 2014, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a Revised Use of Force Policy Handbook providing "guidance and parameters under which force may be used." This Handbook was issued along with a Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) Report commissioned by CBP to review the use of force by CBP officers and agents. All CBP use of force policies, equipment, tactics, and training were reviewed along with all deadly force events from January 2010 to October 2012.
