Deputy Involved Shooting Categories
 
Department members may use deadly force in self defense or in the defense of others, only when they reasonably believe that death or serious physical injury is about to be inflicted upon themselves or others. Discharging a firearm at another human being is an application of deadly force and must, therefore, be objectively reasonable. All members shall view their duties in the context of safety for themselves and others, with an emphasis on respect, professionalism, and a reverence for human life, even when force is required.
