SALT LAKE CITY — After concluding an Internal Affairs investigation into an officer’s June 18, 2014, discharge of his duty weapon that resulted in the death of a dog, the Salt Lake City Police Department finds that the officer acted within policy.

Similar to the findings released by the independent Civilian Review Board this morning, the department’s internal review found the subject officer reasonably believed that deadly force was necessary to prevent death or serious bodily injury to himself from a dangerous animal under SLCPD Policy III-310 Force, Use of and SLCPD Policy III-300 Firearms. Therefore, the excessive use of force complaint filed by the dog’s owner was deemed “not sustained.”

Reporters interested in talking with Police Chief Chris Burbank about the investigation are invited to a Q&A session in the Media Briefing Room of the Public Safety Building, 475 S. 300 E., at 10 a.m. this morning.
