Arrest-Related Deaths: Statistics and Coverage Assessments


Miranda Houston (Editor)

Series: Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement and Corrections
BISAC: LAW081000

From 2003 through 2009, a total of 4,813 deaths were reported to the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ (BJS) Arrest-Related Deaths (ARD) program. The ARD program is a national collection of persons who die in the custody or under the restraint of state or local law enforcement personnel. Deaths are reportable to the program without considering whether physical custody had been established or whether a formal arrest process had been initiated prior to the time of death. The ARD collection also includes the deaths of persons attempting to elude law enforcement during the course of apprehension. This book examines statistics and coverage assessments of arrest-related deaths.
