GBI wants more confidence in use of force investigations

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia's top law enforcer says you should have confidence that investigations into police violence in Georgia are handled properly.

The GBI investigates just about every deadly officer use of force case that happens in Georgia.

The agency has developed a detailed manual that outlines every step GBI agents must take in those investigations.

GBI Director Vernon Keenan says they're constantly updating the manual and their training to make sure the public keeps confidence in each investigation.

"They're expecting to have answers, and they're expecting to have transparency in what has occurred, and that is what the GBI lives up to," said Keenan.

Tonight, a deadly officer-involved shooting is at the center of a special report by Ben Roberts: Policing the Police at 6:00 p.m.
