Officer Involved Shooting and Critical Incident Seminar Plano, TX.

This Officer Involved Shooting and Critical Incident seminar is hosted by the Plano Police Department.  The training will be held at the Plano-Richardson Police Training Center located at 4912 14th Street Plano, TX. 75074 

The purpose of this two-day course is to provide investigators with an understanding of a basic investigative model for all officer-involved critical incidents, as well as the intricacies of the officer-involved incident process. This course provides the information and techniques necessary for law enforcement investigators and agency administrators to conduct thorough and competent investigations into Officer-Involved Critical Incidents.

Officer-Involved Critical Incidents include officer-involved shootings, in-custody deaths and other use of force incidents resulting in death or critical injury. The methodology necessary for proper analysis of these critical incidents must consider investigative components, which include the criminal, civil, and administrative investigations.  This course will examine and discuss each of these specific and required investigative areas.

Irrespective to the size or composition of the law enforcement agency, critical encounters between officers and the community can produce an irreparably negative effect. Students completing this course may employee the skills presented during active investigations to document and report these critical incidents. Transparent and thorough investigations will often reduce the criticism and distrust fostered by the community that results from officer-involved incidents.
