22 Deployment (cont.) Control the device I.D. target area
Subjects and/or combustibles Device failure plan Entry upon initiation Re-pin if needed

23 Post-Deployment Medics Collect evidence “Control” Deployment Debrief
Medic must be available during ops which devices could be deployed. Collect evidence Device accountability “Control” Deployment Debrief Document device use

24 Documentation Use of force issue Departmental policy detailed report
Photos and/or video Medical screening Diversionary device log
