Provides a data quality profile of the Arrest-Related Deaths (ARD) component of the Deaths in Custody Reporting Program (DCRP). Data from the ARD represent a national accounting of persons who have died during the process of arrest, including homicides by law enforcement personnel and deaths attributed to suicide, intoxication, accidental injury, and natural causes. The report provides an overview of the ARD program, a description of the current data collection methodologies, and an assessment of the coverage for ARD cases involving law enforcement homicides. See also Assessment of Coverage in the Arrest-Related Deaths Program and Arrest-Related Deaths Program Assessment: Technical Report.
