Public Safety Training and Consulting

This two-day course is designed specifically for supervisors who direct, motivate, lead, appraise and discipline others.  Topics covered in the 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 

This course is taught by either Lt. Keith Wuotinen or Sgt. Jason Meier both with the Novi Police Department and are also attorneys licensed to practice law in Michigan.  Attendees will greatly benefit from their experience in law enforcement and the legal field as they gain a better understanding of supervisory responsibilities and how to reduce liability for themselves and their agency.  Attendees are NOT required to have taken MACNLOW’s Police Supervision or Advanced Supervision courses prior to attending this course, but those courses are recommended prerequisites as some course material builds upon assessments taken during those courses.

The cost is $350 per person.  This course is registered with MCOLES and is eligible for 302 funds.
