Weir ends the letter with the following: "This conclusion of legal clearance of criminal responsibility by any Lakewood police personnel should not be viewed as a complete endorsement of all procedures followed on November 9th, 2012.

Comprehensive training must address this tragic situation so that every effort has been made to ensure that the likelihood of losing a gifted and dedicated agent such as Agent Davies is eliminated to the greatest extent possible."
