Training- Agitated Subjects and Ketamine: What’s Law Enforcement’s Role? Free Webinar 

<![if !vml]><![endif]>

Ketamine is in the spotlight. As a law enforcement professional, why does that matter to you? Because ketamine is often administered during attempts to restrain and calm an agitated subject. Used properly, it can save lives. But used improperly, it can cause harm to the subject and bring liability on law enforcement and fire/EMS.  
  
Join a panel of experts to learn what public safety agencies can do to mitigate the risk involved with prehospital ketamine administration and improve communication and de-escalation in subjects requiring restraint. 
  
You’ll Learn: 

  • Legal trends associated with prehospital ketamine use 
  • Key findings from an ESO study involving more than 14,000 ketamine administrations 
  • The role and limitations of law enforcement in such incidents  
  • The necessity of cross-agency (fire, EMS and law enforcement) communication

 Chris Boyle Law Enforcement Consulting, LLC
2022 Monthly Caselaw Updates

Date: New one-hour of videos on the 1st of every month
Time: Watch them any time that fits your schedule
Location: PowerDMS, PlanIT, or my online Learning Management Site
Cost: $8.25/officer/month ($99 yearly subscription)
Online information: https://www.chrisboyleconsulting.com/monthly-online-training
Discount: 14 months for the price of 12, no payment until January 

If you and your troops are training on only the ten “most important” cases that make it into state-mandated training every year, cases that are sometimes eighteen months old before you hear about them, you may be missing out.  

Every day, I review every case that comes out of the United States Supreme Court, every case in the Third Circuit, Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Pennsylvania, and every reported Pennsylvania state law case from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on down, that mentions law enforcement.  I pull any case involving a change or clarification in the law, and any that my thirty-two years in, and defending, law enforcement tells me is worthy of your time. Why is it worthy? - Either because I have defended officers sued based on the same concept, or it is an area where we fall short in applying criminal law, and the guilty go free.  

Every month, I provide these cases to you in four, fifteen-minute videos, on the first of each month, adding relevant “check-the-box” topic discussion as the need arises through the year.  The oldest case you will ever see in one of my updates? 31 days.  New for 2022? Each month I will be sending Departments a test on that month’s training, to gauge “knowledge transfer”. New Departments signing up now, will receive November and December 2021’s updates at no additional cost. (Departments who have been along since the 2021 launch and renew, will receive a two month discount for 2022!) 

Keeping up to date on the most recent developments in the law will help keep you and your officers out of federal court as defendants, and at the forefront of professional policing. You and your officers each receive twelve hours of high quality, up to the minute training over the course of a year for less than ten bucks a month.  If you head off just one federal lawsuit, the investment pays for itself many times over. I look forward to you joining the 42 Departments already taking part, and stand ready to answer any questions you might have, or to sign you up. Thanks for your time!

New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Expands Leadership Training Program into Eastern Pennsylvania!
NJSACOP’s Academy Continues to Grow and Thrive!

TRENTON – October xx, 2021 – What began in 1992 as a leadership training program inspired by the U.S. Military Academy at West Point has resulted in more than 700 police officers across New Jersey and surrounding states receiving intensive courses in how best to lead and motivate their colleagues while fostering positive community relationships.

The work of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) has not stopped at the state line. The 13-week program – known as the NJSACOP Command and Leadership Academy – initially expanded into Delaware. It is now growing again.

NJSACOP today announced the academy will soon be serving the next generation of leaders in five counties of eastern Pennsylvania. The inaugural class will enter the program in January, to take courses through the Chester County Sheriff’s Office under the direction of NJSACOP trainers.
