Roll-Call Training: Duty to Intervene

Hypothetical: (Sergeant should use names of officers at the roll-call to emphasize the reality of such hypothetical situations):

Officer Boehm, let’s suppose we have a high-speed pursuit this evening. The pursuit travels some distance and the suspect makes several aggressive actions toward police cruisers. Let’s further suppose that the suspect finally bails out of his vehicle proceeds to flee on foot. Officer Malloy (the primary officer in the chase) catches the suspect and begins to assault the suspect who at this point has given up an is submissive.

Questions:

What are your obligations to our department?

What are your obligations to the suspect?

What are your obligations to your brother and sister officers?

Do you expose yourself to personal liability if you fail to intervene in this excessive use of force?
