This seminar developed for law enforcement executives/command officers, policy personnel and supervisors will cover agency and personnel exposure to Civil Liability/Risk Management Section 1983 issues and lawsuits. The curriculum of this program has been designed to allow for interaction between law enforcement professionals, particularly policy personnel, and the instructor/attorney Dale Anderson, who regularly provides legal update training to line and command personnel. The program will primarily focus on Use of Force issues and as time permits, topics will include:
  • What is the difference between a Section 1983 action and a common lawsuit?
  • What is the history of Section 1983-and why has it become so (figuratively) deadly for officers?
  • Why is Section 1983 making things worse for officers all the time?
  • What are the situations where officers are the most vulnerable to Section 1983 actions?
  • What are the “rules” regarding “force” and “deadly force”
  • What are the answers to policy-related problems like tasers, noisy parties, civil disputes, etc?
  • Attorney fees -- why can any competent attorney earn $1,000,000 a year suing you?
  • How can the impact of Section 1983 be mitigated politically?
  • What is the relationship between evidence getting “tossed”-and officers getting sued?
MTU 5’s request for certification of this course, as well as Mandate Approval, has been approved by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standard’s Board.
