A good friend of mine on a local department there in Massachusetts was recently involved in two fairly significant incidents, one of which involved a weapon. Both incidents involved multiple officers. The outcomes were ultimately good but from what he told me, they could have and should have, been done better. I asked him what came out of the debriefs and he almost laughed. He then explained to me that his department doesn't do debriefs. When I asked him why not, he said that they just don't do that kind of thing around there. He also wasn't aware of any departments around him that do them either. He has been out here to LA and watched my guys do several debriefs so he knows what they are and said he would like to see them done on his department. So, I'm now wondering if any of your departments conduct debriefs after a critical or significant tactical incident? And if not, why not? My department has been using them for at least my 20 years on the job and find that they are very beneficial to learning... What do you guys think?
