A superior review of the case law on the use of deadly force and high speed chases by law enforcement! Police use of deadly force remains a critical issue for police and the public in the 1990s. This monograph describes and analyzes two types of deadly force used by police: firearms and vehicles. Bringing these two subjects together highlights the dominant trends in the development of police policy. Major contributions of the book include the analysis of the common aspects of these issues as well as why and how they became important reform issues and how law enforcement employees and society have reacted to them. This material serves to frame the questions that researchers and policy makers should be asking in the future.
