The intent of this course is to provide information that can be used as a basic framework for Illinois investigators, prosecutors, and law enforcement executives who are faced with officer involved shootings/deaths .  The goal of this course is three-fold:
  1. To provide a basic framework for law enforcement entities to use as a starting point for their own particular best practices.
  2. To encourage professional and consistent officer-involved death investigations practices throughout the State of Illinois.
  3. To ensure that officers involved in these critical incidents are treated in a professional and predictable manner so as to mitigate any damage that can be inadvertently done to the officers by inexperienced and/or untrained investigators and law enforcement command.
 The recommended best practices provided in this course are just that, “recommended”, and are provided as options to be seriously weighed and considered by any law enforcement entity that is researching the best investigative practices and procedures to utilize in their own jurisdictions.  Various counties, and jurisdictions within these counties, will have a myriad of contractual, logistical, prosecutorial, and resource factors to consider when determining the best methods and practices of investigating officer-involved death investigations.
