Course Description:

Given the current law enforcement climate, coupled with the recent political polarization of the nation, major protests and civil unrest has been at the forefront of concerns for U.S. law enforcement. Agencies charged with ensuring public order and citizen’s First Amendment Rights must appropriately balance these oftentimes confounding issues where split-second operational decisions can mean the difference between a lawful assembly and a destructive riot. The bedrock to an agency’s effectiveness in these critical situations rests upon its ability to properly plan, communicate and train utilizing best practices that are both proven and accepted. This presentation will offer the audience the myriad considerations and best practices that go into keeping such events peaceful within the framework and relevant pillars of IACP’s Blueprint and the 2015 President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing.  This course will be held via Zoom.
