In April 2021 HSSEDI, sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office for State and Local Law Enforcement (OSLLE) and at the request of nation-wide law enforcement agencies, conducted the Law Enforcement Use of Force (LE UoF) Simulation Experiment (SIMEX 21-3). The goal was to provide evidence-based data and recommendations to the law enforcement community of practice that would support the deterrence and reduction of arrest-related fatalities and injuries due to applied force by officers.
For a general overview of the experiment, watch the SIMEX 21-3 Overview and Highlights Reel.
Below are the associated publications and findings. For a copy of the SIMEX 21-3 Final Report, which provides an overview of the experimental design, data analysis, conclusions, and recommendations, please contact email@example.com.
