The year, 2020-21, has been a monumental one for policing in American. Get on top of the developments that will affect your practice. First, a review of the Supreme Court’s 2020-21 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.
This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
Key topics to be discussed:
- Supreme Court’s 2020-21 term in review: limitations on residential searches and arrests, but an expansion of what is a seizure
- Mastering the state of mind requirement from “objective reasonableness” to “deliberate indifference” for individual, municipal liability, and punitive damages
- Reforms that would limit qualified immunity, neck restraints, no-knock warrants, pursuits, shooting at vehicles, and require de-escalation of force and intervention
- Training models that integrate assessment, communications, and tactics and replace the use of force continuum and 21-foot rule
- Discipline that involves early warning, citizen review boards, public hearings, and access to disciplinary records
- First Amendment, the right to protest, new concepts in crowd control
- Legalization of drug possession and what that means to motor vehicle stops, searches, and arrests
- Future of policing
