Police Risk Management Conference

Time: 08:00 am


Putting A Vest on Claims - Litigation - Losses In 2022, there was $ 95,292,194.00 in Mega Law Enforcement Settlements. Mega is $ 200,000.00 or more. Over the last two decades, law enforcement agencies and individual law enforcement officers in the United States have been the subject of intense public scrutiny. The litigious condition of American society has been a key factor in this scrutiny. The very nature of police work, i.e., Use of Force, High-Speed Driving Pursuits, and Arrest, lends itself to complaints and lawsuits from those whom law enforcement officers have contact with. Law enforcement agencies and officers must have a working knowledge of developing laws relating to police liability and discipline. Agencies and officers must be made aware that they may be held accountable for decisions made by a court having jurisdiction over them. The developing law guides police training, operations, individual conduct, and operations. A failure to recognize the importance of this area of the law can lead to serious monetary consequences for Law Enforcement Agencies, individual police officers, supervisors, police executives, and insurance providers. In extreme cases, a failure to follow the rules set forth by the courts can result in criminal sanctions.
