“Department managers and investigators have an inherent obligation to ensure they are keeping abreast of and understanding the ever-changing advances in technological, forensic, legal, and academic processes relative to use of force investigations, especially Officer/Deputy-Involved Shootings. Having a unique forum where investigators from around the country not only discuss best practices, but also learn the intricacies of conducting these use of force incidents, which at time may be high profile, will undoubtedly help improve scene investigations, the interview process and the ability to thoroughly document an incident which we all know happens in the blink of an eye.”
