By Antioch Police Department

The Antioch Police Department released its annual Use of Force report for 2022 and it shows that it occurred in less than 1% of all incidents.

Quick Data:

– 79,781 Calls Handled in 2022

– 67 Use of Force Incidents

– Force used in 0.084% of Incidents

The Antioch Police Department has embarked on several initiatives to demonstrate a commitment toward best practice policing principles of transparency and accountability, while serving and protecting our community.

In addition to innovative training that emphasizes de-escalation and use of alternative resources for individuals in crisis, we are currently building an online dashboard, which will provide interested individuals with data on how often our officers use force, the different categories of police force (baton, firearm, taser, pepper spray, etc.), and showing the number of calls we respond to.

We have compiled statistics from 2022, which show our officers handled 79,781 calls for service and used force a total of 67 times. This means our officers used force on less than 1% of incidents (actual number 0.084%).

In the coming weeks, look for an additional breakdown of that data, which will categorize how our officers used force, and comparing that data to previous years. Please continue to follow our social media for more updates once the dashboard is up on our website. As always, thank you for your inquiries and thoughtful suggestions as we work to serve you better.
