Little data on police shootings available

According to this source the recent incidents involving police shooting unarmed suspects has "raised a question about policing that not even the Justice Department can answer: How often do officers across the country fire their weapons?
Under current federal laws, there is nothing requiring any of the 18,000 police departments and other law enforcement agencies across the country to report to the public or to the Justice Department anything about shootings involving officers."
