Public Safety Training and Consulting

This course is over!

Topics covered in this third and final course in MACNLOW's Capstone Award supervisory series include supervisory responsibility, procedures to investigate citizen or staff complaints, investigative confidentiality requirements, legal updates on specific decisions applying to public safety professionals, further explanation of search and seizure law, use of force, jail/lock-up issues, and how to mentor and coach disciplined employees.   

The emphasis is on practical application of:
- Understanding of liability in your “individual” and “official” capacities
- Identifying implications for supervisory liability in “failure to control” employees with a history of misbehavior
- Practical procedures (practiced in class) for investigating complaints
- Tips for applying current case law on a day-to-day basis
- Ways to coach employees back to high performance 

The course is taught by Lt. Keith Wuotinen (Novi Police Department) who is also an attorney licensed to practice in Michigan.  Attendees will greatly benefit from his dual role in law enforcement and as a lawyer.

Preferred (but not required) pre-requisites include Police Supervision/Achieving Supervisory Excellence and Advanced Supervision.  

The cost is $350 per person and the course is MCOLES approved for 302 funds.
