This Supervisory/Management Level course will be presented by
Chris Boyle, Esq, LE Consultant

Duty to Intervene:  The duty to intervene in a constitutional violation has been an obligation of Law Enforcement for decades, but one that has been pushed to the forefront by police reform efforts.  This class explores the origin of the duty in the law, the actions required of the individual Officer and Department, and case law examples of the duty in action. 

Social Media:  From the recent events in our nation's capital, to the "Plain View Project" and other efforts to place Law Enforcement social media use in the spotlight, the pitfalls of improper social media use are clear.  This class will delve into the state of the law regarding public employees' social media use, best practices for individuals and municipalities and real-world examples of expression leading to sometimes harsh discipline of public employees. 

Dealing with Mentally Ill Subjects:  The dangers, and potential for the use of deadly & non-deadly force, are manifest in dealing with mentally ill subjects.  Police remain the first responders to citizens in crisis and are often unprepared for the demands of the law, resulting in sometimes catastrophic outcomes.  This class covers the current state of the law and move quickly into actual cases both where officers were found liable, and where their efforts produced a better outcome.  The class will focus on avoiding "catastrophic outcomes" and protecting the officer and municipality from litigation.
