Which U.S. states have the most police officers?
Police officers in the United States have been under increasing scrutiny in recent years as a growing number of police departments nationwide have been struggling to keep up with the surge in killings of black men and women.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics released data this week showing that police officers in New York City alone have recorded more than 9,500 murders since 2014, with nearly two-thirds of those killings attributed to the use of force by police.
The data, which were collected by the New York Police Department and released to the Associated Press, also found that New York is among the states with the highest number of shootings of unarmed black men.
More than 2,100 people were shot and killed by police officers nationwide in 2016, according to the Justice Department.
The New York data revealed that the city has the third highest murder rate among the country’s major cities, behind only Los Angeles and New Orleans.
The city of New York recorded an average of more than 4,000 murders per year from 2010 to 2016, and the number of people shot and wounded by police has risen steadily since.
On Tuesday, New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that makes it easier for police officers to wear body cameras in the wake of the release of the New Yorker’s series of undercover videos of the department.
But the governor’s administration has said that the legislation will not be enough to solve the issue of police brutality.
A review of the bureau’s data showed that the majority of police officers surveyed in New Jersey were wearing body cameras.
In New Jersey, police in 2016 were shooting at and killing at a rate of more people per year than police in Chicago, the state with the nation’s third-highest murder rate, according a report by the Associated Board of Review of Police Practices.
The state has more than 7,000 officers with body cameras, but according to a review by the watchdog group Common Cause, only five officers were wearing them at any one time in 2016.
The watchdog group, however, said it found that the use and misuse of force against people by officers in police departments across the United State has increased since the release, while the use-of-force rate has not increased.
The use of deadly force against police officers has surged across the country, according the New America Foundation.
Since 2013, the number in New America’s list of the 100 largest police departments has more recently jumped from a low of 14 to 34.
The report found that more than 40 percent of police officer deaths in New Hampshire and Vermont occurred in 2017.
In Louisiana, where a federal judge has ruled that police are unconstitutional and are a threat to the public’s health, the police force has also seen a rise in the use death in 2016 and 2017.
There, the rate of police shootings in 2017 was more than twice the rate in New England.
The Louisiana state attorney general, meanwhile, has launched an investigation into the department’s use-and-use-of force policies.
Louisiana’s Department of Public Safety is facing criticism for its handling of the investigation.
The department, which includes both police and public safety personnel, has defended the use by saying that there were too many people in danger.
“It’s not that they’re not protecting people,” Louisiana Gov.
John Bel Edwards said in an interview with CBS News.
“They’re protecting their own.
They’re protecting themselves.”
Edwards has also said that there is no evidence to suggest that the state’s police department was involved in any wrongdoing.
The Justice Department is reviewing the data in New Mexico and Pennsylvania.
New Mexico has recorded the most murders in the country during the period covered by the AP’s data, with more than 2.6 million people killed.
In Pennsylvania, the report found, police killed at least 1,913 people in 2016 as well as more than 400 people in 2017, the highest total in the nation.
In Wisconsin, where more than 3,000 people were killed in 2017 in police shootings, the department has been criticized for a lack of transparency and accountability in its response to shootings.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice has launched a review of how the department responded to incidents, said Jennifer Jacobs, a spokeswoman for the department, in a statement.
The investigation could take years, Jacobs said.
“This is an investigation that’s going to be a long time in the making,” she said.
The bureau also released its annual data on the use, misuse, and injury of police force in 2017 as well.
The AP identified the five states with highest rates of fatal police shootings as the following: Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, and Louisiana.
The Washington Post first reported the state-by-state data in February.
