In recent months, issues surrounding vehicle and foot police pursuits have come under increased public scrutiny. Elected officials and community activists across the country are calling for a fundamental “reimagining” of police operations in this and other areas of police operations.  Many law enforcement leaders are revisiting their policies, procedures and training to ensure that they are doing everything possible to appropriately manage the risks posed to officers and citizens as it relates to pursuits.

In this two-hour webinar, Attorney Matt Dolan will review the sources of liability incurred by law enforcement agencies when engaging in pursuits of suspects, the importance of giving officers clear guidance for decision-making in the field and the necessity of developing policies in light of local community priorities.

Topics covered will include:

·  Liability under federal law and the “shocks the conscience” standard

·  Liability under state law—looking at what your state law allows versus what it requires

·  Ethical and public safety implications of your pursuit policy
