WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has named a team of nine people, including an FBI official and former police chiefs, to aid in a review of the law enforcement response to the deadly Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting.
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the team during a meeting in his office in Washington on Wednesday.
The critical incident review is being led by the Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
The Justice Department says the review will include an examination of police policies, training and communication, along with the deployment of officers and tactics.
The school shooting left 19 children and two teachers dead. Parents outside begged police to rush in.
