(1) What Did You Know?
(2) When Did You Know It?
(3) What Did You Do?
For FTOs and front-line supervisors, Chiefs and Sheriffs, and everything in between, these questions underpin virtually all legal claims of supervisor liability and agency liability facing law enforcement agencies across the country. When being deposed or questioned on the stand regarding allegations of officer misconduct or negligence, supervisors are essentially required to answer these 3 questions.
It is vitally important that supervisors can answer these questions in a way that is both honest and defensible in light of their professional, ethical, and legal obligations to protect and serve the public. A crucial part of answering these questions is often providing documentation that supports the assertion that an individual supervisor did everything that they reasonably could to address performance issues before an incident of serious misconduct.
In this two-hour webinar, Attorney Matt Dolan will review case studies of supervisor liability to illustrate the various ways that supervisors either expose themselves to liability or minimize it—depending on how they are able to answer these 3 key questions.
