Problematique of Use of Excessive Force by Law Enforcement Officials in Securing Public Order

Serkan ALTUNTOP [1]

Kolluğun aşırı güç kullandığına dair haberler ve/veya iddialar sık sık medyada yer almaktadır. Sadece ülkemizde değil dünyanın her yerinde polisin güç kullanımı yasal bir dayanağı olmasından bağımsız, bir şiddet hareketi olarak ele alınabilmekte ve eleştirilmektedir. Yasal bir dayanağı olmakla birlikte, güç kullanmada aşırıya gidilmesi veya sınırların zorlanması güvenlik ve kolluk hizmetleri üzerine yapılan araştırmalarda en çok tartışılan konuların başında gelmektedir. Aşırı güç kullanılmasının ise sosyal, psikolojik ve kurumsal açıklamaları bulunmaktadır. Ülkemizde de zor kullanma ile ilgili tartışmalar son dönemlerde özellikle artış göstermektedir. Bu nedenle konunun akademik çalışmalarda daha detaylı incelenmesine ihtiyaç bulunmaktadır
News and/or claims on excessive use of force by law enforcement officials to civilians have been placed in media outlets. Not only in Turkey, but also in all the world, excessive use of force is considered as a violent act independent from its having a legal basis. It is occured both in physical form and in the form of threats, gestures, intimidation and abusive language. This article investigates use of force by law enforcement moving from the general literature and specifically focuses on the problem of excessive use of force in Turkey regarding both legal basis of use of force and determinants of applying excessive force. Discussion in the article depends on literature, face-to-face interviews, and media sources. Determinants of excessive use of force are argued to have legal, organizational, individual, political and technical aspects. At the end, some policy implications for policymakers and practitioners on preventing excessive use of force will be discussed
