Handle Serious Incidents Swiftly, Openly, and Neutrally


When serious incidents occur, including those involving
alleged police misconduct and those that have the
potential to damage community trust or confidence in
the agency, agencies shall communicate with citizens and
the media swiftly, openly, and neutrally, respecting areas
where the law requires confidentiality. Policies should state
what types of information will be released, when, and in
what situation, to maintain transparency.
(Adapted from Action Items 1.3.2 and 2.2.5 from the
Presidential Task Force on 21st Century Policing final
