Best Practices for Conducting Fair and Legally Compliant Public Safety Administrative Investigations
A public safety administrative investigation is a key element in whether an agency will be successful in imposing discipline. What do decision-makers, hearing lawyers and courts look for in an investigation report? This two-day course will unlock the difference between a public safety administrative investigation that supports discipline versus those that undermine it.
This POST-approved course provides a complete guide to conducting a fair and thorough public safety investigation that will create a defensible disciplinary action in the event of sustained findings. You will gain an understanding of the impact that good decision-making and strategy have on the agency’s success in defending investigations and winning appeals.
This 2-day seminar will encompass legal aspects of a properly conducted public safety investigation, including topics such as:
- Overview of the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act (POBR) and the Firefighters Procedural Bill of Rights Act (FBOR) and the consequences of violations for your agency
- Best practices in initiating and organizing the public safety investigation
- How to obtain documents and other evidence
- Interview techniques and transcript recommendations, plus pitfalls to avoid
- Identifying common mistakes during investigations and solutions
- Current and emerging legal trends in public safety allegations and discipline
Who Should Attend?
- Personnel assigned to a police department’s professional standards unit, most notably investigators, and the supervisors, managers, risk management, fire department and human resources professionals that manage or oversee public safety personnel investigations.
