After an incident
Incident Checklist & Incident Report Form
The purpose of the incident checklist is to outline the guidelines to be followed AFTER an incident occurs. This includes rendering aid, identifying the alleged source of the incident, preserving evidence from the incident, obtaining statements, and completing incident reports. This checklist and documents provide an easy step-by-step process to gather the necessary information needed to properly investigate the incident. The purpose of the incident report form is to document the details surrounding the incident in real-time, directly after an incident occurs. The incident report form has sections specifically geared to documenting an STF incident and can be used as a supplement to any standard incident report form.
