Group: American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts
The report begins with a review of the types of less lethal weapons currently available to law enforcement, including chemical sprays, pepper spray, impact projectiles, electroshock weapons, and other devices (Section II). It then examines national legislative and legal landscape regarding less lethal weapons, including a review of recent lawsuits against police departments arising from the use of less lethal force (Section III and IV). A survey of current less lethal policies of major metropolitan police departments is set forth in Section V, covering Boston, New York, Seattle, and Los Angeles.
