Tactical Options Research Reports

A key role of New Zealand Police Response and Operations: Research and Evaluation (RORE) is research, analysis, monitoring and evaluation of Police use of force, to provide accountability and assist evidence-based decision making, to improve police and public safety.

RORE produces regular research reports, including biannual and annual Tactical Options Research Reports that monitor tactical options deployment ie, handcuffs, empty hand tactics (physical force), OC spray (pepper spray), baton, TASER, dogs, and firearms.

These reports position New Zealand Police at the forefront of international best practice in accountability and transparency for the use of force.
