Public Safety Programs

Liebert Cassidy Whitmore’s public safety experts understand the unique challenges, both legal and societal, that law enforcement agencies face, and we use that understanding when handling or advising on the entire scope of personnel issues that law enforcement executives will encounter, from recruiting and hiring through separation and retirement of both sworn and civilian personnel.  LCW attorneys not only provide advice, counseling and representation services, but we also train agency personnel on a host of subjects. See below for all of our upcoming public safety programs!

The legal and political environment in which decisions about use of force investigations and discipline must be made is very different than it was just a few years ago.  Civil liability is not necessarily the predominant concern anymore.  This seminar will examine issues related to the investigation of critical incidents involving officers.  More specifically, this seminar discusses the issues surrounding criminal, civil and administrative investigations of these matters, particularly the administrative investigative issues.  In this training, you’ll hear from experienced public safety attorneys examine best administrative practices that your agency should follow and how to evaluate issues ranging from the implications of SB 2 to SB 16 to Brady to potential criminal prosecution of officers.
