OCCUPY AND BEYOND
Practical Steps for Police Crowd Control
The “Occupy Movement” is really a precursor to the near future for many of our police agencies. There are many other forms of protest we should expect to encounter: political demonstrations, union protests, sports celebratory events, immigration rallies and other protests of governmental actions.
We shouldn’t forget the lessons learned in the 1960s during the civil rights movement and Vietnam protests. We shouldn’t simply rely on our new equipment and force tools.
In this training webinar we will discuss the five most important law enforcement issues for effective crowd management and control. These five issues are subsequently the primary focus for civil actions against police agencies:
- Officer/agency attitude;
- Unlawful assembly response;
- Arrest provisions;
- Use of force;
- Mass arrest protocols.
