Emerging Law Enforcement Trends
Length of Seminar: 2 Days
Instructor: Steve Campbell
What are the contemporary issues facing law enforcement today?
Technology, in a very real sense, is transforming policing in fundamental respects. New and emerging technologies are playing an increasingly crucial role in the daily work of frontline police officers. Agencies are equipping them with enforcement and investigative tools that have the potential to make them better informed and more effective.
Body Worn Cameras:
The increasing use of body-worn-cameras by officers and the common practice of citizens filming officers is a recent development to policing.
Unmanned Aerial Surveillance (drones) are being used by agencies to assist operations in areas such as search & rescue, crowd control, tactical operations and investigations. What are the liabilities?
Eyewitness identification: in criminal investigations is critical to clearing the case. In many cases the eye witness is the clincher! Yet, cases and studies have proven, eye witnesses can make mistakes.
Dealing with the Mentally Ill, Emotionally Disturbed: Agencies need to provide field officers with the essential tactical and processing skills necessary to effectively de-escalate and deal with persons of diminished capacities in a manner to provide the required professional assistance these persons need, to protect the community, to safeguard the officers involved in the encounter and to enhance the agency’s risk management.
Preventing Friendly Fire: Police officers across the U.S. have been shot and killed by fellow officers who have mistaken them for dangerous criminals. These fatal shootings are doubly tragic first because both the shooter and victims in such situations are risking their lives to enforce the law and protect the public, and second because many of these deaths are preventable.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Protect your employees and your agency from the realities of sexual harassment. Take action, investigate and remedy accusations of sexual harassment. Create a policy that educates and empowers employees.
