FAQ Detail
Does the ARD program include deaths caused by civilians during the process of arrest?

Yes. The ARD program includes deaths caused by injuries sustained by non-law enforcement personnel during an arrest process.
 
For example, a death would be considered arrest related if an arrest suspect ran into oncoming traffic during a pursuit and was fatally struck by a vehicle operated by a civilian.
