Your greatest asset and your greatest liability are the people that represent your agency every day. As agencies face a difficult recruiting environment, increased turnover, and calls to re-evaluate hiring criteria to cast a wider net in recruiting efforts, the risk of negligent hiring is a serious one. This is a crucial time for law enforcement leaders to re-evaluate their hiring practices to ensure that they are doing everything within their power to address the legal, ethical, and public safety risks associated with hiring “warm bodies” in spite of discoverable red flags as it pertains to applicants’ character and ability.
In this two-hour webinar, Attorney Matt Dolan will review the sources of liability incurred by law enforcement agencies when making hiring decisions based on background investigations, academy performance, and conduct during the field training program.
Topics covered will include:
“Thank you for doing this training! Every law enforcement & their families should have this training! SO IMPORTANT!”
“…Lt. Nieters’ ability to teach this class truly gripped me into seeing [that] I need a change. Hope to attend further training.”

“I would consider Matt to be a master orator. Kept a serious topic interesting with his unique and fantastic sense of humor.”

“This should be required for ALL leaders (or people in command) across the nation.”
“I’ve sent 2 of my team members to Verbal De-Escalation. I’ve had it & it’s an amazing class. After encounters, I see the 180 degree difference in these young officers! I will petition to send all of them.”
