White, Michael D.
Evaluation Review, v27 n1 p50-78 Feb 2002
Used interrupted time-series analysis (ARIMA) to study the impact of legislation and judicial intervention on the use of deadly force by police officers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Findings generally suggest that dynamic changes in the internal working environment can outweigh the influence of external mechanisms on deadly force use. Findings also illustrate the usefulness of the methodology. (SLD)
