September 20th

(8a-10a) Officer Involved Shooting- After the Incident- Sgt. Matt Richards Dixon Police Department, this presentation will involve the suggested best practices for managing an Officer Involved shooting (Deadly Force investigation) with a focus on dealing with officer care. The presentation will cover 1) Policy and suggested best practices, 2) Matt's OIS Case study, 3) Surviving Emotionally.

On September 11, 2002, Sgt. Richards was involved in a “SWAT” call out involving a knife wielding subject, suffering from a mental health situation. Matt was assigned as cover officer (lethal force), while a partner deployed a Taser. When the Taser did not incapacitate the offender, the offender attempted to stab the Taser officer. Matt’s actions saved the life of his partner.  

(10a-12p) Officer Involved Shooting Case Review- Trooper Brad Williams Illinois State Police, this presentation will involve the case review in the apprehension of a southern Illinois murder suspect. The presentation will cover how following the then current Pursuit and Use of force policies were problematic in this real-world scenario. This event is also a positive review of how an OIS can be managed with officer care in mind.

On April 24, 2013, Trooper Williams was involved in a manhunt for a quadruple murder suspect. While operating a State Police motorcycle, (in the rain) alone, Trooper Williams spotted the suspect and began a chase that took him into Winchester, Illinois, where he received assistance from two other officers. Officers managed to stop the vehicle when the suspect, armed with a shotgun, pointed it at the Winchester Police Chief. Trooper Williams actions saved at least one officer and possibly three had he not performed his duties that day.

There will be no costs for MTU1 region members and that includes your lunch!
