    Officer Invovled Shooting Documentary: Now Filming

    I'm currently in production of a documentary on officer-involved shootings. As an officer, I've seen how officers have been portrayed in the wake of a shooting and I committed to filming a feature-length movie that shares the incident, impact, and implications from the officer's perspective. If you or someone you know might benefit from sharing a story, please visit the website

    Officer Involved: A Documentary

    The movie offers an inside look at the media, legal, personal, family, career implications, etc.. for someone involved in a shooting. Far from a story about the negative aspects of these incidents, the film offers a human perspective on police officers and the everyday heroes who serve our communities and country. Several well-known authors and researchers have come on-board the project to assist with sharing the realities of an officer-involved shooting. Anything sent through the Officer Involved Project website is seen only by the sworn officers who are making the film. Thank you all for your service.

    Agreed with chapwolfe. Looks like a worthwhile project indeed. Good luck!

    EDIT: Your contact page mentions contacting for information on financial contributions. Have you given any thought to adding a paypal "Donate" button to your contact page or setting something up on kickstarter?

    I agree, this sounds like a worthwhile project. Are you just looking for OIS where the officer is the shooter or are you also interested in when the officer was the victim? We have had 3 incidents in the last 5 years where a total of 4 officers were seriously wounded (one shot in the head) and all have fought back and are either back to work or almost ready to return to work. All are incredible stories that have not only affected the dept. members (and community) emotionally but also effected training and policy in our organinzation.

    You want input from Police that have been shot on duty ? Unfortunately I fall into that Category now...

    Thanks for the comment. I am currently on a timeline to launch a crowd-funding page by summer. In the meantime, anyone who does wish to make contributions can reach out through the 'contribute' tab and we'll speak offline. All donated funds are being used to film the project. Tavel is the biggest consideration.

    Thanks-
    We are currently seeking any officer at any level who has been involved in the use of deadly force. I am personally following up with every person who sends a message through the 'Contribute' tab. Most interviews will take place this summer with planned destinations across the US. Please reach out if you have a story to tell: Contribute
