(16 Hours)

California POST Certified: #1345-32100 – Plan N/A

Law enforcement officers are under scrutiny like never before. That’s why when an officer-involved incident occurs or an officer is suspected of wrong-doing, the investigation must be conducted by competent and well trained investigators. That’s where you come in!

This course provides law enforcement officers and investigators with the specific skills they can use to investigate internal affairs issues and officer-involved incidents (e.g., officer-involved shootings). This training will include directions on how to organize an investigation, respond to incident scenes, and proven methods for conducting thorough investigations based on the latest case law.

Attend this course and learn:

  • Step-by-step instruction on how to conduct both criminal and administrative investigations from incident to adjudication
  • How new laws like California SB2 affects internal affairs and officer-involved incident investigations
  • How to minimize criminal, civil, and administrative liability for your officers and your agency

Whether you are a supervisor who may one day have to manage an OIS scene, or you conduct IA investigations for your agency, this class is for you.

Instead of “Death by Power Point” you’ll discuss real cases with highly experienced investigators. You’ll learn the specific way to conduct investigations, the pitfalls to avoid and how new laws affect your investigations.
