Course Length: 8 hours
Prerequisites: Participants must be a law enforcement officer, an officer assigned to investigate officer involved shootings, a behavioral health professional, a chaplain, a prosecutor, or a dispatcher assigned to emergency communications.
Description: This course will discuss the physical, emotional, cognitive, social, departmental and other changes that may occur in any officer involved shooting. Aspects of the before, during and after of the event will be detailed. Considerations of the initial investigation, follow up investigations, grand jury issues, public sentiment issues, and the welfare of the individual officer will be examined. Other issues discussed will include the legal parameters for use of lethal force, statutory and case law pertinent to an officer’s use of lethal force, evidence, interview of the shooter and witnesses, reports, news media, and return to duty. With attention to officer involved shootings being on the rise and with them becoming a controversial topic with national media, the law enforcement community should closely examine and improve its traditional approach to these events.
