Navigating The POBR And FBOR: The Fine Line Between Routine Contact And Interrogation
When subjected to an “interrogation,” public safety employees are provided a variety of protections under the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act (“POBR”) and Firefighters Procedural Bill of Right Act (“FBOR”). Supervisors are regularly faced with the difficult distinction between permissible routine interactions and those that cross the line and trigger these statutory rights. When does a supervisor’s intent to shoot the breeze with a subordinate have the unintended consequence of shooting an otherwise proper investigation in the foot? With unions and their legal counsel aggressively fighting to protect the statutory rights of their membership, it is essential that every agency has a comprehensive understanding of the potential pitfalls during internal communications with public safety employees. Join us for a lively discussion on case studies and best practices in navigating this challenging area of the POBR and FBOR.
