LVMPD Setting The Example

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, at least in my experience, usually does an excellent job of informing the public and the media about high notoriety incidents.  They had an officer involved shooting on July 10, 2015, and how they have handled the information release should be used as an example for all agencies.

This is the press conference they held in which they described the incident.

And this is the body cam footage that they released.

LVMPD handled this extremely professionally and it really is a good example for other agencies to follow.  Additionally, the officers involved all appear to have performed admirably.  Well done to all involved!
