COMMISSIONER'S MESSAGE
Philadelphia's more than six thousand sworn police officers have taken an oath to protect and serve the city's residents, workers and
visitors. It is the policy and commitment of the Philadelphia Police Department that our officers hold the highest regard for the sanctity of
human life, dignity and people's liberty. The application of deadly force is to be employed only in the most extreme circumstances and
when all lesser means of force have failed or could not be reasonably employed.
When Deadly Force is Used
Why We Post Officer Involved Shooting (OIS) Information
What You Will Find on this Page
You will find data, maps, and charts about officer involved shootings. Also provided is a flow chart of the process that starts when there is
an officer involved shooting. Finally, the department is providing information about each officer involved shooting.
CITYWIDE VIOLENT CRIME
Philadelphia is an amazing city that rivals major cities around the world. Great cities face great challenges. One of Philadelphia's
challenges is our battle against gun violence. Over the past five years, we have put our officers where they need to be in the most
violent areas, during the most violent times. We believe that this approach accounts for the reductions in crime across our city. The
following data shows what officers are doing and facing every day for us.
Tables
The first table below offers a statistical look at crime, assaults against police officers, and police involved shootings starting in 2007. The
second table defines terms used in the first table.

Maps
These maps show the areas of violent crime. They help illustrate the level of violence police face on patrol. Officer involved shootings do
not occur in a vacuum. They occur in neighborhoods where pockets of violence exist.

WHAT IS AN OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING
An officer involved shooting (OIS) is the discharge of a firearm, whether accidental or intentional, by a police officer, whether on or off
duty. For the purposes of this posting, an officer involved shooting will only refer to the instances in which an officer discharged a
firearm at a person.

Training Procedures
OIS Review Flow Chart
INDIVIDUAL SHOOTING SUMMARIES
The following information offers a brief summary of circumstances that surround officer involved shootings. For the purposes of this
OIS | Philadelphia Police Department
http://www.phillypolice.com/ois[10/22/2014 3:58:35 PM]
chart, an officer involved shooting will only refer to instances in which an officer discharged a firearm at a person. It will also include
information about the police department's investigation into determining whether department policies and procedures were followed and
whether the district attorney found the shooting within the framework of state law. Detailed summaries are available by clicking the police
shooting numbers.
Officer involved shootings reported here do not include accidental shootings or animal incidents. For that reason, the police
shooting number listed here will not always be sequential.
The District Attorney's Office may find the police involved shooting justified and decline prosecution or determine that the shooting
is not justified and refer the case for criminal charges against the officer. The police department investigation is suspended while the
district attorney investigates to determine if legal action is warranted as required by the Garrity Rule
After the DA's decision and independent of that decision, the Police Department's Use of Force Review Board will examine the
totality of the circumstances and issue a determination on whether the force was appropriate. The UFRB's decision may result in
disciplinary charges, training and/or review of department policies and training. The U.F.R.B. members are the Deputy
Commissioners of Organizational Services, Office of Professional Responsibility, Major Investigations and Patrol Operations.
This information reflects a preliminary summary of what occurred at the time of the incident.

Garrity Rights, which originate from the United States
Supreme Court case of Garrity v. New Jersey, protect
public employees, including police officers, from being
compelled to incriminate themselves during internal
administrative interviews conducted by their
employers.

This protection originates from the Fifth Amendment
to the United States Constitution, which states that
the government cannot compel a person to be a
witness against him/herself. For public employees,
the employer is the government and this is the
reason the Fifth Amendment applies to public
employees as opposed to private company
employees.

Consequently, any statements given by a public
employee under threat of discipline or termination
cannot be used later in any criminal prosecution
against the employee.
