Unlike attorneys, law enforcement personnel do not have the luxury of sitting in an office mulling over law books to decide how to proceed. Police officers and deputies must often make split-second decisions; thus, effective police work hinges on the immediate and correct application of search and seizure law. In fact, they must have a better understanding of the Fourth Amendment, and the judicial system’s interpretation of the Fourth Amendment (based on court decisions) than attorneys.
This highly interactive, scenario-driven search and seizure course provides officers with up-to-date information concerning search and seizure case law and analyzes “real life’’ situations that confront you on a daily basis, explores current and past federal and state court rulings (case law), and discusses the impact these rulings have on how officers perform their duties. This course will provide you with a clear understanding of what you can and cannot do, with the goal of keeping you proactive, productive, safe, and out of legal dilemmas.
