Policing under Section 1983: The Year in Review

$195.00

CLE credits earned: 2 General Credits (WA 2 Law and Legal)

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

    “Live” Re-Broadcasts
