Law enforcement agencies and their leaders will always face the risk of complaints and lawsuits. Without proper guidance, officers will perform their responsibilities in their own vision, putting the agency and themselves at risk.
Agencies must develop, deliver, and provide supervision around policies that help guide officers. Without proper direction, leadership will be exposed to liability, and officers will lose the protection of following policy. It is the responsibility of agencies and officers to understand their own liability and the possibility of an individual seeking compensation for acts committed by officers while enforcing the law in their jurisdictions.
This illuminating course highlights several areas where police administration, front-line supervisors, and police officers can modify or improve to help prevent litigation due to mistakes or intentional actions committed by agency members.
