Last week Capitol Public Radio released a study of the use of force by 22 regional law enforcement agencies, including the Elk Grove Police Department.

The study, which was conducted via public information requests and looked at statistics over a three year period gave EGPD high marks for what it called "the most robust collection of data for use of force among the 22 departments Capital Public Radio contacted."

On the other end of the spectrum were Stanislaus County Sheriff's, Placer County Sheriff's, and Yuba City Police did not tabulate use of force incidents. Citrus Heights Police only tabulated use of force if it involved a dog bite from a K-9 unit while Manteca Police did not categorize use of force by type.

As far as use of force by EGPD, the department recorded 60, 66 and 73 total use of force of incidents in 2012, 2013, and 2014 respectively. Over the same three year period there was a slight increase in the total number of annual arrests going from 2,684 to 2,732.
