Police officers not only face potential hazards in the line of duty, but they also face serious legal issues for failing to train and supervise officers. In an era of unprecedented transparency, it isn’t enough anymore to “let things slide.” Today, District Attorneys and Prosecutors face more pressure than ever before to bring criminal charges against police officers for failing to properly train and supervise subordinate officers.

Civil lawsuits and even criminal charges against supervisors can result if you and your Department do not have the proper protocols in place and take appropriate action when necessary. As too many officers are learning through first-hand experience, lawsuits are not just a professional problem – they can take a toll on an officer’s family, health, and finances. Class attendees will be trained on relevant areas of Federal and State law to provide them with a basic working knowledge of:

  • How and why civil lawsuits are filed.
  • How a failure to manage, properly document, and deal with misconduct can get you sued in federal and state court.
  • What to do if you are named in a civil lawsuit.
  • Practical steps to prevent civil and criminal lawsuits.
