Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers' use of force jumped nearly 27 percent in 2007, according to an internal affairs report released Thursday, and the department says it will use the data to make needed improvements.

Police used force against citizens 505times in 2007, compared with 399times the previous year. Fewer than 1 percent of those incidents violated department policies, the report said.

Use of force ranges from touching a suspect to firing a Taser or a gun.
