Off Duty Officer Involved in an Officer Involved Shooting NR12469ne

Orange County:  The Los Angeles Police Officer who was involved in an off duty, officer involved shooting in the County of Orange has been identified as Police Officer Fred Williams, 7 years, 6 months with the Department.

On September 26, 2012 around 9 in the morning, the officer fired his weapon at a suspect that had attempted to enter his home in Orange County.  

LAPD’s Force Investigation Division (FID) responded and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting.  

The local police department will handle the investigation of the crime committed against the officer.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Office of the Inspector General and The Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s use-of-force policy which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must be objectively reasonable.  Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.
