The way law enforcement officers use force is under scrutiny like never before. As an agency administrator, you need a high-level overview of California’s new use of force laws and how those affect training, liability, and policy decisions.

This seminar will include:

  • The new changes to Penal Code 835a and why police officers are being criminally charged
  • The new laws about de-escalation
  • The training and policy implications of new use of force laws

This seminar will cover the changes that have been made to use of force laws and how agencies can reduce liability before, during, and after an incident.

Target Audience:
California law enforcement agency command staff and administrators.

Based on our popular Use of Force for Field Supervisors course, this seminar has been specifically designed for agency executives to provide you a high-level understanding of the current use of force landscape in California.
