These 25 police departments use pepper spray the most in N.J.

Recommended Posts

8. Kearny, Hudson County

Number of pepper spray uses: 36

Percent of force used: 22.64

Capt. Timothy Wagner, head of internal affairs for the department, said he was not sure if the numbers were accurate because officers may have filled out the actions of other officers in an incident. 

"It might be a good training topic to start with," he said. 

All uses of force are reviewed by multiple officers, but he said there have been zero instances of pepper spray-related misconduct during his time there. He believes pepper spray can be helpful to prevent more severe harm. 

"Usually (pepper spray) issues resolve an hour later, versus if you're wrestling with someone that could cause permanent injury," he said.

Insignificant.  Barney must have a very dull life.
