A promotion to a supervisory position is an invitation to enter the world of risk management. Far too many supervisors are learning about these challenges through the process of trial and error—at great expense to themselves, their agencies, the people they lead and the public that they serve. It is vital to agency operations that supervisors are continuously considering the ramifications of their leadership decisions in the context of liability and risk management.
In this course, case law and recent real-world case studies will be utilized to illustrate the most common and costly liability issues confronting supervisors in law enforcement and effective strategies for minimizing that liability. This training is designed to prepare law enforcement supervisors to take preventative steps to limit supervisor liability, maintain organizational standards and protect the public trust.
