The Security Squad investigates all shooting incidents involving police officers and any complaints regarding possible criminal misconduct against employees. These investigations include accusations against officers, city employees from various departments, and other administrative investigations.
The Security Squad is also responsible for teaching Deadly Force lectures at the Training Academy for new police recruits and during In-Service Training for veteran officers. Their Deadly Force lecture is also part of the training received by all citizens enrolled in the Citizen’s Police Academy.
