Lou Reiter

Lou Reiter - Legal InstructorLou Reiter currently is a police consultant. He offers three (3) separate professional services to the law enforcement community. He provides training to police groups in the high liability areas of use of force, emergency vehicle operations, high risk operations, investigations of citizen complaints, Internal Affairs procedures, investigation of critical incidents, and liability management. He will normally conduct 15-20 of these programs ranging from 2 hours to 5 days in length. The primary seminars are a 2 ½ day program on Internal Affairs and Police Discipline and a 5 day program on investigation of police use of force incidents both for the Public Agency Training Council, Indianapolis. Each year nearly 1,000 police practitioners will attend these training programs.

Each year, Lou also conducts an average of 5-10 agency management audits and liability assessments. These have been for state, county and municipal police operations. The size of these agencies has been from 3 persons to 39,000 employees. These audits allow him to be in police cars up to 100 hours each year. He has been a consultant on 8 U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Special Litigation Section, investigations of agencies involving patterns and practices of Constitutional violations. He was selected as a Federal Court monitor for the Consent Decree of Colln v. Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, CA.

Lou provides litigation consultation to attorney firms involved in police civil actions. Since 1983, Lou has been retained in over 1100 such cases in nearly every state plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This has been on both sides of the table with approximately 60 percent being for plaintiffs.

Lou Reiter was a member of the Los Angeles Police Department from 1961 to 1981. During that tenure he had 22 different assignments and rose through to ranks to retire as Deputy Chief of Police. About 70 percent of his time was spent in uniformed operations while the bulk of the remainder was in Internal Affairs, use of force review, training and personnel administration.

Lou has been published throughout his professional career. He was one of the principle researchers and authors of the 1973 Police Task Force Report of the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Standards and Goals, where he authored the chapters on Internal Discipline, Training and Management-Employee Relations. Reiter has recently authored the 3rd Edition Law Enforcement Administrative Investigations guide: A Manual for Citizen Complaints, Administrative Investigations and Internal Affairs which will be provided to seminar participants.
