Baltimore PD Fails To Train After Cop Shootings

BALTIMORE, Md. (AP) — A new report examining the Baltimore Police Department’s policies and procedures will fault the department for failing to conduct training reviews after officer-involved shootings.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the report, produced by an expert panel, could be finalized as early as next week.

The report says the department for years has not done the so-called “after-action” reviews of officer-involved shootings.

The reviews are used to train officers, and are called for under the department’s own guidelines.

Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III tells the Sun that the department needs to do a better job of conducting the reviews.

The panel has been reviewing the department’s policies following a police-involved shooting outside a nightclub in January.

Homicide detectives and internal affairs investigate officer-involved shootings, but training reviews are different.
