Description

The National Use of Force Framework model is intended for explaining the process of how a police officer responds to a situation, with the target audience being both the general public and police officers in training. The original design (link) was improved upon by establishing information hierarchy and applying the Gestalt principles of design. This redesign of the National Use of Force Framework model aims to clarify the content for easier interpretation by the target audience.
