Dallas Police Department is conducting a detailed and comprehensive investigation andthat the findings are based upon facts uncovered by the investigation. The PoliceDepartment has requested the FBI to conduct this type of review on several occasions,the most recent of which is the James Harper shooting.”An open records request released by the Dallas Police Department on May 15, 2013shows that a policy explicitly requiring notification of all officer involved shootings bemade to the FBI Civil Rights Office, was implemented. The policy is as follows;“SIU FBI Notification Policy: Anytime an officer involved shooting occurs in which acitizen is injured or killed, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) will email the DallasDivision of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Civil Rights Unit, the shootingsummary, no later than the first working day following the incident. The ShootingSummary does not trigger an investigation, unless requested by the Chief of Police. Theintention of this policy is to have a neutral third party oversight and instill confidence inthe citizens of Dallas. Special Agent Kevin Sheridan is the supervisor over the CivilRights Unit, Color of Law Abuses. His e-mail isKevin.sheridan@ic.fbi.gov.”On March 10, 2013 Clinton Allen, 25 and unarmed, was shot seven times and killed byDallas Police Officer Clark Staller, Badge# 9514. Email correspondence between aconcerned citizen and FBI Special Agent Kevin Sheridan, and FBI Special AgentStephen E. Cam--Supervisor, both assigned to the FBI-Dallas Civil Rights Unit, showthat there has been no correspondence between the FBI-Dallas Office and the DallasPolice Department regarding the shooting death of Clinton Allen. The open recordsrequest and the email correspondence also show that there has been no ShootingSummary submitted to the FBI-Dallas Civil Rights Unit, as required under policyimplemented by Chief of Police David Brown.
