Justified and/or within policy and procedure. Also, honest. Officer involved shootings are sometimes called "good shootings" because the officer was justified in his actions. It has nothing to do with the incident being "good" as in nice or desirable. Also, sometimes used to describe assaults (including rapes.) If a victim is truly a "victim," and reports the offense exactly as it occurred, it might be referred to as a "good assault." It's not that the police are glad it happened, it means we believe that the victim is telling the truth.
