LOS ANGELES (AP) –  Officers at thousands of law enforcement agencies are wearing tiny cameras to record their interactions with the public, but in many cases the devices are being rolled out faster than departments are able to create policies to govern their use.

Even as Violent Crime Falls, Killing of Officers Rises

According to statistics compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 72 officers were killed by perpetrators in 2011, a 25 percent increase from the previous year and a 75 percent increase from 2008.

You are confronting an armed suspect, no cover available. He faces you, with his gun at his side, pointed at the ground. Your gun is aimed at him and you’re ready to shoot. He ignores your commands to drop his weapon. Are you justified in pulling the trigger before he makes any move to point his gun at you?

Connor.

Witness: Tacoma officer killed sacrificing self to save partner, shooter's wife
TACOMA, Wash. -- A woman who witnessed Wednesday's shooting of Tacoma police Officer Reginald "Jake" Gutierrez said he sacrificed himself to save his partner and the wife of the man who opened fire. Kristi Croskey said Gutierrez repeatedly yelled, "Get out! Get out!" to his partner and the woman as shots were fired from an upstairs landing at an East Tacoma home. Croskey was downstairs when she "heard the shells bouncing off the floor" above her head. Gutierrez, 45, a 17-year department veteran known for his ability to defuse tense domestic-violence situations, collapsed inside the home as his partner returned fire and led the man's wife outside to safety. Croskey hid in a downstairs bathroom before fleeing.
HB 2399 is a no quotas bill with bipartisan support.
HB 2399 is a no quotas bill with bipartisan support. The bill would prohibit the number of citations issued by an officer from having a negative impact on the officer’s performance review, evaluation, rating, assessment, salary, promotion, or assignment. This bill supports the discretion of the individual officer to make the proper decision as to whether an actual citation is truly necessary.
