Reducing Liability by Subscribing to the Law Enforcement Legal & Risk Management Update

The Law Enforcement Risk Management & Legal Update is a new periodical that provides timely updates on the law and trends impacting the law enforcement profession. The focus of this bi-monthly subscription service is the critical tasks that create liability for officers and their agencies.

In addition to case summaries the reporter also includes a roll-call training section to be used with each bi-monthly report. Departments that document the roll-call training will be readily prepared to defend failure to train claims that are brought against their agency.

Each bi-monthly report also provides “action steps” a department can consider in a continued effort to manage the agency’s liability risks. These “action steps” may include suggested training, policy, or supervisory steps that may be considered as a mechanism to reduce the likelihood that a department will be found liable under an agency liability theory.

In surveying police agencies nationwide, it has been found that the weakest link to avoiding liability is the necessary legal updates which affect the police profession and reasonable policy and training responses by the agency. The Law Enforcement Legal & Risk Management Update provides the necessary legal updates and outlines recommendations for implementing the necessary solutions to reducing liability.
