About the publication
This work describes the international rules and standards governing the use of force by law enforcement agencies in a range of scenarios: against detainees, during protests, in counterterrorism and counterpiracy operations, as well as during everyday policing. Key trends, such as the growing use of private security services, are also considered. This book provides a human rights framework for police weaponry and protection of at-risk groups based on critical jurisprudence from the last twenty years.
