Law Enforcement Training
Time & Location
About the event
Participants will receive trainings on the following subjects:
Recognizing Medical Conditions
This block provides information on recognizing the signs and symptoms of medical conditions and how they may or may not mirror the signs and symptoms of intoxication or the use of prescription or non-prescription drugs. The goal is to help officers know when to call for emergency medical aid when the circumstances are not always so obvious.
Social Media and Video Pitfalls
This block focuses on the use of social media by law enforcement officers in the context of employment issues, public perception, and litigation. It also examines examples of police conduct captured on dash cam, body cams, and other videos with both positive and negative implications.
Crisis Intervention and De-Escalation
The crisis intervention and de-escalation training block will focus on concepts and tools that pertain to managing encounters with people in crisis. It will examine practical application of techniques officers can utilize to try to defuse interactions with people in crisis or suffering from mental health issues.
In the world of civil litigation, nothing is more powerful than compelling visual evidence to show a jury what happened from the perspective of the police officers on the scene. This portion of the training will showcase examples of work from experts in reconstruction, recreation, and visualization to demonstrate how good report writing, inclusive evidence preservation, and audio and video data can be combined to create persuasive representations.
The final block will focus on recent case law updates and legal issues pertinent to searches, seizures, use of force, and/or other law enforcement issues.
