One of the main pillars of our One-By-One Policing philosophy is community cooperation and trust. Transparency in our community engagement, communication and actions are major ingredients when it comes to building and maintaining trust. The duty placed on law enforcement often requires police officers to take action and make critical decisions in rapidly evolving and dangerous situations. These decisions – and why they were made – often generate questions within the community.
We have created these Critical Incident Community Briefings in an effort to be transparent with residents regarding serious events, while also still maintaining the integrity of the criminal justice process. We ask for your understanding as not all information and details may be discussed at the time of release.
A word of caution
The images seen in these Critical Incident Community Briefings may be disturbing and graphic. In addition, there may be strong language used. Viewer discretion is advised, especially for young or sensitive viewers.
