Public Safety Training and Consulting

Topics covered in the third and final course in MACNLOW's Capstone 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; and,

–       Ways to coach employees back to high performance

This two-day course is taught by Lt. Keith Wuotinen (Novi Police Department) who is also an attorney licensed to practice in the state of Michigan.  Attendees will greatly benefit from the combination of Lt. Wuotinen's law enforcement experience and legal expertise.  The cost is $350 per person and the course is MCOLES approved for 302 funds.
