Officials at Columbine
Columbine Law Enforcement, Medical, and Reports
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

In the wake of the shootings there was a staggering amount of paperwork and evidence to go through. The official reports alone are enough reading material to keep even the most dedicated investigator busy for months, perhaps years. The paper trail begins even before the shootings dating back well over a year prior to the violence of April 20, 1999. What was uncovered brought only a few answers; in most cases what was left behind only led to more questions.

This section houses information about the police, SWAT, and medical officials who helped during and after the shooting at Columbine as well as official investigative reports, 911 calls, and the 2004 Columbine Evidence Exhibit. Proceed with caution: Some of the information here is depressing and/or shocking, and could trigger sensitive readers.
