In-Custody Deaths

LVMPD’s commitment to the public is to be both transparent and accountable regarding in-custody death incidents involving employees. For each in-custody death where the Critical Incident Review Process (CIRP) and the Police Fatality Public Fact Finding Review (PFPFFR)  have been completed, the following documents will be available:  

  1. District Attorney’s (DA) Decision Letter: As the District Attorney issues his decisions; LVMPD will post them in their entirety on the Office of Internal Oversight webpage.

  2. Force Investigation Team (FIT) Report: The FIT Report contains all the evidence found by the investigating homicide detectives. These reports will be made available to you in their entirety with the exception of any information that is deemed confidential in nature.

  3. Office of Internal Oversight (OIO) Review: The Office of Internal Oversight Review will be available to our community and will consist of an internal review that covers key conclusions and outcomes of each in-custody death incident through the Critical Incident Review Process.  The review may also include any changes or additions that were made to policy, procedure, tactics or training if it was necessary to do so as a result of each in-custody death incident.

LVMPD's  first in-custody death where the CIRP and PFPFFR were completed occurred in 2017.  Should a video or document not be available for a specific event listed below, the standard link will have "NA" (not available) as part of the title.
