Who are the complaint-prone officers? An examination of the relationship between police officers' attributes, arrest activity, assignment, and citizen's complaints about excessive force.
This article identifies the characteristics of police officers (officers’ background attributes, arrest activity, and assignment) who most frequently receive complaints from citizens regarding the use of excessive force. The data for the study were obtained from a large mid-western municipal police department. The results show that arrest activity, officer age, and officer gender are most strongly related to the receipt of citizen’s complaints about
excessive force and differentiate high-complaint officers from low-complaint officers. Implications of the findings are discussed. (c)2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved
