Ratings and Reviews
Law Enforcement Consultant
Very helpful guide in completing use if force reports. Clearly explains considerations for using force; simplifies force options; provides useful report samples. A must-have for any law enforcement officer.
The lite version is helpful and a great resource, but the full app was worth the money to get access to the sample reports.
