Police departments in Peoria, Ariz., Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Portland, Ore., have posted their use-of-force policies on their websites.

Do you think posting your department's use-of-force policy on the department's website puts officers in danger? Or do you think it's good to let the community know what policies you operate under?
I think this is a great idea. The available resource to many officers would be invauable. I have been tasked to rewrite our use of force policy. I attended a use of force summit training recently in CT. The ideas presented at this training were very valuable. I would like to examine other department polices which obviously should be very simular.
