A use-of-force report is required every time an officer uses physical force to effect an arrest and whenever an officer is injured while effecting an arrest. This data-set is broken down by type of force utilized. Note, however, that several types of force may be used in a single incident, e.g., the officer may have used a weaponless impact and also deployed a taser.
A Special Service Area (SSA) is defined by Illinois State Statute as a contiguous area within a municipality or county in which special services are provided in addition to those services provided generally throughout the municipality or county. Special services include things like landscaping, advertising, public art, and extra garbage collections. The special services are paid from revenues collected from taxes levied or imposed upon property within that area.
