Can a police officer decide self defense?

No, police officers cannot decide self-defense. Their report of the incident may reflect what they learned or witnessed at the time of the offense but their only job is to enforce the law impartially. It is the Judge or a jury of peers who decides whether self-defense was legally warranted and/or used.Added: HOWEVER - if the question is asking if a police officer may decide to use force in their own self-defense, THAT is a question that only they can decide. Their actions in their own defense (if alleged to be inappropriate), will be the subject of an inquiry into the circumstances that prevailed at the time they made the decision.
