The statement is from Gil Moore, the spokesman for the COPS office at DOJ:
Officer Shooting Review Statement
As part of the technical assistance support services that we provide to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) will review the recent shootings of police officers and share what we learn about these incidents with the law enforcement field as they work to protect officers and citizens through the application of effective community policing practices.
The COPS Office is in the process of completing an after-action review of another high-profile case involving the fatal shooting of officers, and we anticipate continuing to work with concerned stakeholders on these and other critical law enforcement issues in the future.
