The FBI plans to begin a pilot program early next year that would gather more complete use-of-force data, including information on cases that don't result in death. The earliest participants would be the largest law enforcement agencies, as well as major federal agencies such as the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
 
The program would then be expanded to include additional agencies across the country, which would be expected to regularly disclose whether a use-of-force instance resulted in death, injury or a firearm discharge at or in the direction of a person, according to a notice placed in the Federal Register.
 
"We're looking for ways to make it as public as possible, both for the general public and for people who do research," Lynch said at Georgetown.
