Police may be violent at nonviolent actions for various reasons. In my experience, the most important ones are because police are directed to use violence as a form of political repression and because police are afraid of what to expect. Thus, in addition to considering the many other aspects of any nonviolent strategy, the planning process might consider ways in which any action can be made less vulnerable to police repression (or, for that
matter, violence by provocateurs).
