LCW Webinar Recording: How to Evaluate Your Agency's Internal Affairs Process
September 09, 2015
One of the cornerstones of maintaining accountability in a law enforcement agency is an effective Internal Affairs process that ensures that complaints of misconduct are dealt with effectively through impartial, thorough, and accurate investigations. Problematic IA investigations often lead to discipline that winds up getting reversed or reduced on appeal—even in situations where misconduct occurred. A string of compromised investigations and failed disciplines undermines morale and diminishes the public's trust in an agency. This webinar explains the steps an agency should take to look at their internal rules, processes, POBR compliance and purging procedures to make sure the agency is well positioned to conduct thorough and accurate investigations.

LCW Webinar Recording: Texting Your Way To An FLSA Lawsuit
November 18, 2015
In this installment of our monthly webinar series, we will discuss the legal requirements, and possible ramifications, of employees who perform work "off the clock." Even our most committed employees become a liability when they "donate" their time before or after shift. With the advent of smart-phones and 24/7 access to work, and the expectations that come with this access, the risk grows even greater. We encourage public safety supervisors and command staff to attend this webinar to learn about the legal standards for compensating employees for all hours worked, to think about any "unwritten rules" that may exist within your department, and to develop best practices to manage and minimize overtime liability.
