Law Enforcement Accountability Unit (LEAD)

The State’s Attorney’s Office’s review of officer-involved shooting cases where a death has occurred is the subject of intense public interest. In the past, the manner that the State’s Attorney’s Office reviews these cases, as well as the evidentiary and legal issues that impact these cases have not been made widely known to the public.  In advancing our commitment to create safer, stronger communities by approaching each case with integrity and accountability, we are sharing the way we review officer-involved shooting cases where a death has occurred and the legal analysis undertaken in determining whether the filing of criminal charges is appropriate in a particular case.
