Use of Force Review Committee

The Use of Force Review Committee reviews a representative, random sampling of investigations of lower level uses of force resulting in injury or death, including arrest and control techniques, baton strikes, and conducted energy weapon deployments.

Lower level uses of force do not include shootings, as these incidents are reviewed by the Critical Incident Review Committee.

The Use of Force Review Committee includes the following Commissioners:

    • Mr. David A. Sonenshein, Esq., Chairperson
    • Mr. Joshua S. Maines, Esq.
    • Ms. Elizabeth C. Pittinger
