In Chapter Eighteen of Police Technology, less-lethal devices developed for law enforcement are introduced. “Use-of-force” levels are also discussed. Based on this information and your reading assignment for the week, compare the less-lethal devices/technologies with the “use-of-force” levels by addressing the following:
What are some of the less-lethal devices available to law enforcement today?
Which less-lethal devices are commonly used?
Under what general circumstances do you think the less-lethal devices should be used? Explain your answer.
What are the advantages to using these devices as opposed to more lethal devices?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s), and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
