11.16.20 Confronting Bias in Law Enforcement (Region 15) 1 Day Virtual

Course Description

Recent public opinion surveys have revealed that a substantial portion of the American public believes that racial bias has a significant impact on police operations and that this bias is widespread. At the Dolan Consulting Group, we find this very concerning. First of all, because it undermines police legitimacy among so many of our citizens. Secondly, because there is a lack of evidence to support the assertion that bias-based policing is a widespread issue.

While we reject the contention that “systemic racism” is widespread throughout all of law enforcement, we must also acknowledge that individual cases of racial bias exist among law enforcement professionals and that bias impacts some officers’ interactions with the public. When this does occur, no matter how small the number of individual officers involved, the damage to police legitimacy is enormous.

There exists today a great need in American policing to confront the genuine concerns expressed by many citizens, community groups, and elected officials regarding police bias. Further, there is a call from many for police professionals to provide personnel with a renewed sense of the historic tradition of the police serving as “Guardians of the Peace” and the correlation with police legitimacy. Our communities deserve no less than an unwavering commitment to historic community-oriented policing focused on Peelian Principles of service, “the police are the public and the public are the police.”

To that end, this training on the topic of Confronting Bias in Law Enforcement strives to provide law enforcement professionals with the knowledge and actionable tools to meet today’s call for greater police legitimacy and accountability.

Public perceptions of bias and the repercussions for police legitimacy 

  • Getting back to Peelian Principles—understanding and reflecting community priorities
  • Embracing transparency in agency operations—including traffic stop and arrest data and decision-making in deploying officers in the field
  • Creating enforcement priorities based on community priorities

Unbiased and ethically defensible hiring, promotional and disciplinary decisions

  • Embracing diversity in recruiting and hiring
  • Ensuring consistency in discipline, regardless of race gender or other factors unrelated to job performance
  • Creating promotional processes that are transparent and unbiased

Early intervention when confronting harassing behavior or other bias-based conduct issues within the department and in the field

  • Prioritizing background investigations to screen for character issues, including biases that have significant potential to manifest themselves in officer behavior
  • Utilizing the field training process as a means of vetting, with an emphasis on demeanor and decision-making in encountering citizens from diverse backgrounds
  • Embracing the sterile cockpit rule while on duty

Confronting bias as a leadership challenge

  • Combating groupthink, the diffusion of responsibility and the bystander effect among agency leaders
  • Emphasizing a duty to intervene and a duty to report when front-line officers encounter instances of bias

Hearing is an ability, listening is a skill...and good, comprehensive listening is an acquired skill that takes emotional intelligence, attentiveness and practice.

2.18.21 How to Stop Social Media Mistakes & Destroy Public Trust! 6hrs (RG 3) Virtual

Course Description:  Social Media Mistakes

Now more than ever there is a need for all social media users to gain at least a basic understanding of social media law. Most employees do work on personal phones without much oversight. Without the proper social media liability training, this places both the employee and employer at great legal risk. To mitigate this risk, I use my 30 years as a digital media law attorney and communication skills as a former network television anchor to develop specialized social media training and policies for all employees, especially non-lawyers.

My expert strategies not taught anywhere else, give you the freedom to grow your brand with social media without becoming entangled in a web of legal issues. My quick and easy-to-use "Red Flag Warning" system helps you identify toxic speech that triggers lawsuits. This new knowledge diminishes the mistakes that you make and also brings you more respect and trust from clients, co-workers, and your attorneys. 

Prerequisite(s): Students must obtain approval from supervisor or training coordinator.

1.19.21 Responding to barricaded subjects; special relationships, duty to act - 5 hrs (Region 3)

Course: Responding to barricaded subjects; special relationships. duty to act & liabilty

This approximately half-day course provides officers with the knowledge they need to understand the difference between what they must, can and should do in responding to non-criminal barricade situations. Understanding what the courts consider clearly established law is necessary to protect officers and their agencies from liability in these often-volatile situations. This course will focus on the case law that has led many agencies to adopt the tactical retreat strategy when faced with non-criminal barricades where negotiation fails to gain a voluntary solution. Conversely, some agencies still advocate the need to resolve scenarios in which they have involved themselves. This course looks at the outcomes of those cases as decided by state and federal courts from Florida and around the country.

5.13.21 How to avoid social media mistakes ! 6 hours (Region 15) Online

Course Description:  Social Media Mistakes

Now more than ever there is a need for all social media users to gain at least a basic understanding of social media law. Most employees do work on personal phones without much oversight. Without the proper social media liability training, this places both the employee and employer at great legal risk. To mitigate this risk, I use my 30 years as a digital media law attorney and communication skills as a former network television anchor to develop specialized social media training and policies for all employees, especially non-lawyers.

My expert strategies not taught anywhere else, give you the freedom to grow your brand with social media without becoming entangled in a web of legal issues. My quick and easy-to-use "Red Flag Warning" system helps you identify toxic speech that triggers lawsuits. This new knowledge diminishes the mistakes that you make and also brings you more respect and trust from clients, co-workers, and your attorneys. 

Prerequisite(s): Students must obtain approval from supervisor or training coordinator.
