NIJ is soliciting concept papers for research and evaluation on the impact of less-lethal technologies on use of force incidents. Proposals should produce findings that will help develop appropriate use of force policies and inform the decision-making of law enforcement personnel. In particular, NIJ is interested in studies that examine how risks to officers, bystanders, and suspects change or vary as a result of differing strategies, tactics, and technologies officers employ to manage threatening situations.
