Officer Involved Shooting Review

Post Date:05/05/2017 3:50 PM


DATE AND TIME:  05/05/2017 @ 4:00 PM



The El Cajon Police Department thoroughly reviews all use of force incidents, including the use of lethal force.  The Department’s internal investigation into this most recent incident is continuing.  The legal opinion given today by the District Attorney is only one component of our internal investigation in which we examine the specific circumstances of the event, department policy, procedures and training as well as the equipment and resources available at that time.  All of these factors play a part in the decision making process by officers involved in use of force incidents.


PREPARED BY: Lt. R. Ransweiler

DIVISION:  Administrative Lieutenant / PIO
