Dr. Payne interviewed by KTOO Public Radio News about police use of force in Juneau

Dr. Troy Payne, Justice faculty, was interviewed by KTOO Public Radio News Juneau for an article about the use of force in arrests by the Juneau Police Department.

He commented "...Juneau police’s reported percentages for use of force are lower than expected."  The article also noted, "Payne says it’s extraordinarily difficult to compare one department, one place to another. Other departments similar to Juneau’s, for example, may be located near a major metropolitan area or classify handcuffing a suspect as a use of force."
