Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the multivariate relationship between factors that affect police officer’s decision to use force on suspects. Specifically, this study attempts to determine the amount of variation that can be explained in officer’s decision to use force on suspects by taking into account factors related to the suspect (e.g., age, gender, weight, height, suspect’s behavior, level of resistance used by the suspect, etc.), factors related to the officer (e.g., age, gender, height, weight, duty position, working with partner vs. one officer, length of service as a police officer, and officer’s perceptions about the physical ability of the suspect), and environmental factors (e.g., physical location of the incident). The analyses are based on a total of 619 police-suspect incidents in Eugene and Springfield, Oregon.

Abstract: Media exposure and high profile cases of police use of force have created a great deal of unrest and more critical views of the authority given to law enforcement. Data on all uses of police force in one Southeastern department were collected over a seven year period. Various factors are measured with regards to both the officers and suspects in an attempt to determine what influence these factors might have on the severity of the force used. Use of force severity is measured in injury to the suspect and/or officer. Results and policy implications are discussed.

4. Meyer, Christoph. "Do Europeans Think Alike About Legitimate Goals for the Use of Force? Lessons from a Comparative Study of Collective Norms Concerning the Use of Force" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p180531_index.html>

Abstract: The proposed paper presents the findings of a comparative research project on changing collective norms regarding security and defence policy in Britain, France, Germany and Poland. Are lessons learnt from history nationally distinct or do we find evidence of a common discourse revolving around the European experience of the wars of the first half of the 20th Century? The paper considers evidence from a media content analysis surrounding the interventions in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq, quantitative empirical evidence from questionnaire responses from elite actors and public opinion polls to measure differences between as well as within countries. One key finding is that there has been a convergence across Europe towards accepting that military instruments are sometimes necessary to protect foreign civilians from organised violence. On the other hand, the paper finds substantial differences in national attitudes rooted in collective identities regarding the use of force to promote values, material or political interests, or pre-empt threats. The paper argues that national strategic cultures thus limit the European Union to the role of a cautious humanitarian power (as epitomised in previous ESDP missions) unless it develops more flexible forms of intergovernmental cooperation on security and defence matters. A European Union that attempts to do more and live up to some of the aspirations set out in official documents will risk failure.

Abstract: In March 2016, the USAFA Center for Character and Leadership Development (CCLD) moved to its new home in Polaris Hall, the first iconic addition to the USAFA campus since the completion of the Cadet Chapel in 1963. In ongoing efforts to educate, inform and inspire the next generation of leaders for the nation and its Air Force, the CCLD fielded a set of interactive digital kiosks to showcase the oral history research conducted by the USAFA Center for Oral History. This paper highlights the research, design, and development of these interactive “Core Values” kiosks, with particular emphasis on how interviews conducted with USAFA’s distinguished graduates are collected and disseminated in efforts to create a usable, accessible past to benefit today’s cadets, and eventually, a wider public audience. Recognizing the key role that the USAF Academy played in providing an intellectual and philosophical foundation for successful careers in the military, government, public service, and the private sector, interviews were sampled for meaningful, inspirational, and informative segments. These highlight both the USAFA Core Values and critical features of the USAF Academy education of paramount importance to both military and civilian careers. The result is a virtual opportunity for today’s cadets to gain meaningful insight from previous generations of distinguished Air Force graduates that will provide them with the introspective wisdom and moral foundation they can glean from examining many lifetimes of distinguished service.
