  • Description

    Policing in America has experienced a huge upheaval as well as advanced scrutiny over the past year. This CLE course will help you stay on top of new developments including residential searches under Caniglia v. Strom, intent to restrain as a seizure under Torres v. Madrid, and residential arrests under Lange v. California.

    The course will offer an overview on the top ten ways that policing in the post-George Floyd/Breonna Taylor may impact your practice and address issues such as qualified immunity, no-knock warrants and choke holds. Failure to intervene, mental health calls and reform in transparency, training and other law enforcement issues will be presented.

    The course will leave you with a variety of take-aways that will be instrumental in helping your practice including:

    • Reforms that would limit qualified immunity, no-knock warrants, neck restraints, pursuits, vehicle shootings, and require de-escalation of force and intervention
    • Training models that integrate assessment, tactics and communications and serve to replace the use of force continuum and 21-foot rule
    • Discipline involving early warning, , public hearings, citizen review boards and disciplinary records access
    • First Amendment, the right to protest, new concepts in crowd control
    • A full review of the Supreme Court’s 2020-21 term including limitations on residential searches and arrests, and an expansion of seizure
