Officer-Involved-Shooting Investigations

In today’s policing, it has never been more consequential to have a properly trained investigative team to correctly and comprehensively investigate a police officer-involved shooting (OIS). Our LESG team has investigated numerous fatal and non-fatal officer-involved shootings. Our staff will train investigators how to effectively, properly, and within the confines of existing federal and state laws conduct a comprehensive investigation of an OIS.

Our staff is inclusive of experienced prosecutors who will provide their insight, concerns, and what will be required to have a thorough and successful OIS investigation. Our team provides training to foreign governments on the best practices of conducting officer-involved-shooting investigations. LESG has also provided training for the United States government and local agencies in conducting officer-involved-shooting investigations.
