The Renton Police Department is publishing use-of-force information to emphasize our transparency involving policy, process, and training. Maintaining public trust is one of our core principles and it is within this spirit that we are sharing the most recent Use of Force Annual Reports.

Renton police officers respond to thousands of calls annually with very few resulting in any use of force (0.1%). The department provides this data with the hope of offering greater transparency of our practices, in turn creating more opportunities for us to work collaboratively with our community, evaluate trends associated with use of force, and develop training curriculums that best suit our high standard of service.

The department has taken great care to ensure that the need for transparency is appropriately balanced with the need to ensure that the data released does not interfere with the privacy interests of the individuals involved.
