Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Date: August 11, 2023
Time: 1pm-2:30pm EST

Jail Officers have different concerns for personal liability than an officer who is working patrol. The subjects are already in custody, so the potential legal issues of probable cause and search warrants, are not at the forefront of your concerns with daily interactions with inmates. We will discuss the current parameters established by the courts when dealing with: Use of Force, First Amendment, Religion, Strip Searches, and the dreaded Grievance Mechanism, and we will also review new case law relating to these. This class will offer recommendations on defending litigation "when" not "if" they knock on your door.
