AMLJIA Hosts Nationally Recognized Speakers for Law Enforcement Training

Jack Ryan and Matthew Dolan are returning to Anchorage in 2014 for the Law Enforcement Management Institute!

Law enforcement officers must have a working knowledge of the developing laws relating to police civil liability and discipline. Officers must be aware that they may be held accountable for decisions made by a court having jurisdiction over them. It is the developing law that guides police training, operations, and individual conduct. A failure to recognize the importance of this area of the law can lead to serious monetary consequences for individual police officers, supervisors, police executives and police agencies as a whole. In extreme cases, a failure to follow the rules set forth by the courts can result in criminal sanctions.

This course is structured in such a way as to assist officers and agencies in making an assessment of their particular level of risk-exposure by examining court decisions that have interpreted aceptable standards of conduct by officers.

Guest Speakers:
Jack Ryan is an attorney in Rhode Island and served for 20 years with the Providence, RI, police department. His law degree and police experience provide a unique perspective on legal issues facing public safety agencies. Mr. Ryan has defended officers and municipalities in use of force cases and provides technical assistance to police departments on policy development and force management.
Matthew Dolan is an attorney in Chicago, Illinois, who comes from a long line of police officers. His family tradition of law enforcement has led him to utilize his legal training to assist public safety professionals in navigating through complex Human Resources requirements and minimizing liability in the course of performing their Human Resource duties.

The 2014 Law Enforcement Management Institute will take place in Anchorage on April 14-18. Register today!
