Internal Affairs Seminar – Buena Park

CATEGORY: Seminars
DATE: October 09 2024, 9:00 am

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.
