The Duty to Intervene in law enforcement should go well beyond incidents of excessive use of force. When officers believe that they have a professional and/or moral obligation to lodge a complaint of wrongdoing, whether inside or outside of their agency, they are often entitled to protection from whistleblower retaliation under numerous state and federal legislation. 

Public trust in law enforcement depends on the willingness of law enforcement professionals to “speak up” when they become aware of unlawful police practices, misuse of public funds or unlawful discriminatory practices. Agency leaders must ensure that these individuals are not unfairly targeted for investigation, discipline, or other negative employment actions that could dissuade others from coming forward in the future. 

This webinar training is designed to assist agency leaders and rank-and-file officers in navigating the municipal, state, and federal legal protections that apply to law enforcement officers who claim to be acting as “whistleblowers” in lodging complaints of wrongdoing.
