LEO Near Miss: Officer rescue mishaps during shooting incident
Radio traffic of responding units contributes to confusion and delay after an OIS during which two police officers are shot
Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) Near Miss is a voluntary, non-disciplinary officer safety initiative that allows law enforcement personnel to read about and anonymously share stories of close calls or “near misses,” which provide lessons learned that can protect fellow officers in similar situations.
At approximately 1500 hours, two officers were shot during the attempted service of a protection order at a local residence.
An investigation leading up to the incident revealed a misdemeanor domestic violence incident occurred between a male and female the day prior, and the female obtained an order of protection that needed to be served. Furthermore, the male needed to be interviewed due to his role in the domestic violence incident.
