New Team Will Investigate Response to Uvalde Shooting

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the review saying assessing what happened at the school could give guidance for the future.

The U.S. Justice Department has named a team to lead its review of the law enforcement response to the shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the review saying assessing what happened at the school could give guidance for the future. The DOJ traditionally relies on people outside the department with law enforcement expertise and on-the-ground experience with mass-casualty events to do reviews. The team will review how police policies, training and communication works as well as the deployment of officer and tactics. The investigation will include interviews of witnesses, families, law enforcement, government officials, and school officials. A review of the resources that were made available in the aftermath of the attack will also be included.
