Critical Incident Videos

Under Assembly Bill 748, California State law requires “Critical Incident Videos” to be released within 45 days of a critical incident, as defined by the bill. SDPD strives to release videos within 10 days of a critical incident. 

SDPD officer-involved shootings and other deadly force incident investigations and reviews are led by an external agency, per the countywide memorandum of understanding.

The investigation and review process for an officer-involved shooting is extremely thorough.

  • Per the countywide memorandum, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Unit investigates all SDPD Officer-Involved Shootings. Their report is then provided to the District Attorney’s Office. The Sheriff and District Attorney are both elected officials in the County of San Diego.
  • The District Attorney’s Office will determine if the officers bear any criminal liability for their actions. 
  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Attorney’s Office also monitor the investigation. 
  • The SDPD's Internal Affairs Unit will conduct an internal investigation into the actions of the San Diego Police Officer.
  • The SDPD Shooting Review Board will evaluate the tactics used. 
  • The internal investigation will be reviewed by San Diego's independent Commission on Police Practices.

WARNING: These videos may contain graphic and disturbing images, along with foul language. Viewer discretion is advised.
