New use of force laws have dramatically changed policing in California. Unfortunately, many officers are confused on how these new laws affect them and their ability to perform their duties. Officers who think it is still business as usual are putting themselves in legal and administrative jeopardy.

To help you better understand how the new use of force laws affect you, we’re presenting this special presentation. We have brought in two use of force experts from both Northern and Southern California to help you understand what changed and what you need to know.

This presentation will include:

  • The specific changes you should make because of AB392
  • The new requirements before you use deadly force on a fleeing felon.
  • What the laws specifically say about de-escalation (and what you are supposed to do)
  • How the New Laws Affect OIS Investigations
  • The Carotid Restraint
