When an officer unjustly shoots a civilian, a city may respond with police reform. But reform may also serve to prevent future incidents. Cities can be categorized accordingly. Proactive cities do not need an officer involved shooting to justify purchasing body cameras. Reactive cities respond to an officer shooting with reforms to pacify public frustration with the police. Police departments throughout the country pursue various forms of reform such as hiring more minorities and testing new technologies all in an effort to curb police brutality. Case studies used include Dallas, Los Angeles, St. Louis/Ferguson, Baltimore, and Chicago.
