About This Course

Whether you sue, defend, or advise law enforcement, this CLE program will keep you current on the use of force, and trends, controversies, and resources under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This program will cover District of Columbia v. Wesby and Kisela v. Hughes, the Supreme Court’s newest decisions on qualified immunity, and five other cases to be decided this year. You will learn the latest limitations on Taser and less lethal force; use of deadly force against Emotionally Disturbed Persons (EDPs); the exigent circumstances exception to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act); de-escalation; re-thinking the 21-foot rule; the IACP (International Association of Chiefs of Police) consensus Policy on the use of deadly force, which advises against shooting at vehicles; rejection of the Ninth Circuit’s “provocation” theory; and the body worn camera (BWC) debate on when officers should review their recordings. All this, plus links to resources you can use in your practice.
