Officer Shooting Investigation

Police officials say officer Jason Strong has been placed on administrative leave following an incident that killed officer Dan DeKreei. He was killed following a training exercise. The shooting appears to have occurred when two officers were displaying techniques to each other. Officer Strong has been with the St. Joseph police department since October of 2005 and has served on the special response team for about two years. He also serves as a field training officer, an evidence technician and is a member of the hazardous material response team. He was awarded the medal of valor after his involvement in an incident earlier this year involving an armed and barricaded subject.
