Critical Incident Review Library

The Police Foundation believes that some of the best lessons and improvements in policing can come from critical incident or after-action reviews, particularly when such reviews are completed with independent experts in a manner that places emphasis on learning and improvement instead of responsibility or fault. Critical incident reviews have been completed on major, multi-jurisdictional incidents and individual agency incidents and activities. Included in the virtual library below are critical incident and after-action reviews and reports prepared by the Police Foundation and other organizations and agencies, through governmental and private funding sources. For more information on the Police Foundation’s services, please visit our Independent Review of Critical Incident Response – Technical Assistance page.
