In the aftermath of an unexpected death or an accident with injury, the responding law enforcement officers immediately get to work.
They need to write a report about the facts of the auto accident, shooting or other crime. They take statements from witnesses, collect evidence and try to establish the chain of events that led to the tragedy.
Officers train extensively to handle those details. What they may not be prepared for is what many call the worst part of the job — informing family members their loved one has died.
