Abstract
The Edmonton Police Service conducted a review of the effectiveness of the collapsible batons initially issued in 1994. Of specific concern was whether the presently used 16 inch batons were effective compared to longer batons gaining favour in other police agencies. The study consisted of a survey of baton use in other police agencies in Canada and an assessment with recommendations by their Officer Safety Unit.
