In response to CALEA accreditation requirements and / or public allegations of racial profiling, many law enforcement agencies have begun to track the race, ethnicity, and gender of those who are stopped, searched, arrested, and / or were the subject of a use of force by officers.

If not researched and written properly, these reports have the potential to be misinterpreted by the media or community groups, needlessly damage the public image of your agency, undermine the legitimacy of your agency with the public, and lower officer morale. This workshop offers crucial skills necessary to present the information in your report in a manner that minimizes the risk of misinterpretation or manipulation, and presents the work of your agency in the most accurate and professionally responsive manner possible.

The process of recruiting, vetting and hiring qualified applicants represents one of the greatest challenges confronting law enforcement. Agencies are looking to new recruiting strategies well beyond putting out the “help wanted” sign. This is particularly true as agencies recruit men and women of the millennial generation.

In 2012, the Indianapolis Metro PD developed a comprehensive approach to responding to officer-involved shootings (OIS) and other critical officer incidents, with a dual focus on investigation and maintaining officer health. This holistic response has resulted in officers receiving pre-incident inoculation, post incident health related resources, completing a mental health check-up, fulfilling their investigative responsibilities and internal review, and returning to full duty-healthy- usually within a two week period after the incident.

The IMPD officer involved shooting and critical incident response model is segmented into pre-critical incident preparation and post incident 24 hour response increments: 0-24 hours, 24-48 hours, 48-72 hours, 72-96 hours and beyond. The model focuses on stress and trauma inoculation before the critical incident and responding to the officer post incident with a methodology involving triage and support resources. This preparation and response results in the officer being better equipped to survive a critical incident, assist investigators post incident, while also being pro-actively engaged in long-term healthy practices.

Public safety professionals are recognizing a common problem in agencies throughout the country: a small but distinct element in the workforce that generates the overwhelming majority of stress for fellow officers and supervisors. These are an agency’s toxic employees—who can be such a distraction from the agency mission that supervisors and other employees seem to spend more time dealing with internal issues than they spend actually serving and protecting the public. Toxic employees tend to be perpetual plaintiffs who file baseless grievances, complaints and lawsuits throughout their careers. They work to intimidate supervisors while deflating the morale of their fellow employees due to management’s apparent inability to hold them accountable for their actions.

This course will prepare public safety leaders to deal with this small but extremely damaging presence in the workforce in a way that both protects the integrity of the organization and is legally defensible. Ensuring that these management techniques are legally defensible is particularly important in light of the fact that one of the dominant traits of many toxic employees is that they are highly litigious.

The vast majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct encountered by government agencies are generated by a small number of problem individuals. It is crucial, therefore, that government agencies can successfully discipline these few “bad apples”.

In other cases, disciplinary action is necessary to hold essentially good employees accountable for misconduct that threatens agency operations. In these cases, making discipline stick is actually in the interest of the employee, as it can serve as a much needed “wake up call” to an employee before performance issues become so serious that termination is required or public safety is threatened.
