From the Introduction: "In 2003, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) developed the Arrest-Related Deaths (ARD) program to be a census of all deaths that occur during the process of arrest or during an attempt to obtain custody by a state or local law enforcement agency (LEA) in the United States. The ARD program measured all manners of arrest-related deaths, including (justifable and non-justifable) law enforcement homicides, suicides, deaths due to natural causes, deaths resulting from accidents, and undetermined or unknown manners of death."
