About This Course
The past few years have been a monumental one for policing in America. Get on top of the developments that will affect your practice. First, a review of the Supreme Court’s term: residential searches under Caniglia v. Strom; residential arrests under Lange v. California; and intent to restrain as a seizure under Torres v. Madrid.
Next, the top ten ways policing after George Floyd and Breonna Taylor will affect your practice: from qualified immunity, choke holds, and no-knock warrants; to de-escalation, mental health calls and failure to intervene; to reforms in training and transparency in discipline; and changing concepts in law enforcement itself. All this, plus links to use in your practice.
