Risk Management & Liability Prevention for Law Enforcement Leader

Classification : Specialized Training
Where : Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy
When : December 4, 2020
Description :
Time: 0700-1545

Mr. Randy Means is a nationally recognized expert in police law, leadership and risk management. Particularly in the high risk, high liability areas of law enforcement, police organizations battle a variety of threats. Injury and death, loss of public trust, and civil liability are daily concerns.

Today, lawsuits and communities question whether a law enforcement agency has responsibly planned and managed a broad array of operational and administrative dynamics. The agency's policies are challenged and hiring, training, supervision and discipline processes are scrutinized.

If police officials have not dealt adequately with these matters, supervisory liability, liability for negligent training, and municipal liability will follow, as will loss of public trust.

Through responsible, systematic planning and implementation, law enforcement supervisors, managers and administrators can minimize the risk of officer misconduct, increase individual and organizational effectiveness, sharply reduce the threat of civil liability, vastly improve community trust, and enhance both officer and public safety. This program shows how.

Training Topics Include:
  • Recruiting and hiring the right people to be law enforcement officers

  • Better use of policy and associated written directives systems

  • Enhanced but lower cost training and testing systems

  • And more..

During her tenure with the FBI, her investigations into narcotics, gangs, cold case homicides, and crimes against children had direct impact on communities, local and national. She was highly accomplished and recognized by her local law enforcement partners and the United States Attorney’s Office.

    Course Description:
    Statement Analysis is the structured examination of an individual’s verbatim words for the purpose of conducting a more in-depth interview. This course is designed to provide investigators with a structured method of examining verbal and written communication. Students will develop specific linguistic tools and strategies to use in analyzing the oral and written words provided by employees, applicants, witnesses, victims and suspects.

    Within the law enforcement context, Statement Analysis is used as an investigative tool to gain insight into an individual’s thoughts, motivations and ideas. Statement Analysis is also used to assist in the recognizing veracity and detecting areas of possible deception. Students will participate in practical problems designed to use the tools presented during the course. These tools will give insight into a statement and, in criminal cases, enhance the prospects of gaining confessions through the amplification of the statement. In addition to practical problems, instructional methods include case studies, demonstrations and group discussion.

    Optional:
    Student are welcome to bring written statements from investigations to the course for group analysis, with individual Department/Agency approval if required. Identifying information contained in statement(s) should be sanitized.
