Militarization of police forces by providing them with more arms and weapons is also one of the major drivers. For example, there is an increase in the rate of police militarization in the US, under the program ‘Urban shield’ fueled by the money from Department of Homeland Security. In the US, the Department of Defense is also authorized to donate surplus military equipment to the police. The police are also authorized to purchase weapons for counter-drug actions, homeland security, and emergency response activities. Similarly, the EU has established a multinational police force, the EGF, with military status, which performs police tasks with the scope of crisis management operations. The EGF consists of more than 3,000 militarized police from member countries such as France, Portugal, Netherlands, Italy, Romania, and Spain, and can be deployed in any of the EU member nations.
Non-lethal weapons (also termed as less lethal weapons) are used by both the military and the law enforcement forces. Unlike lethal weapons, that can cause casualties, the non-lethal weapons are used to reduce the fatalities to a large extent. These weapons are specifically designed to cause temporary harm or injury to a person. Non-lethal weapons are mainly used for crowd dispersion, controlling civil wars, and controlling illegal protests against governments in order to maintain law and order.
