Now that the suspects are booked, the internal investigation will begin because deadly force was used. It is your job as the chief to determine if the correct amount of force was used in this situation. You have decided to review your policy and change it to reduce the liability of the department. Consider the following:
- Address the following in 4–6 pages:
- Locate 2 law enforcement agencies’ use-of-force policies.
- Compare and contrast each policy.
- How are the policies similar? Explain in detail.
- How are the policies different? Explain in detail.
- Create 1 final policy that covers the best of each policy.
- Why did you choose the elements for your policy?
- Assume that Officer Eddie Smith was the officer who pulled the trigger that killed the suspect.
- Explain how you would investigate this case according to your newly developed policy.
- Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
