Perils and Pitfalls of the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act: A Guide to POBRA
With police 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 origin of those rights - the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act ("POBRA"). An agency's ability to successfully conduct and complete an investigation of peace officer misconduct hinges upon on how well it can successfully navigate POBRA's strict requirements. What action triggers an officer's rights under POBRA? How do you properly initiate an investigation into allegations of police officer misconduct? How do you handle an aggressive representative during the investigation process? What are the penalties for running afoul of an officer's POBRA rights? Join us for a lively discussion on the best practices for complying with POBRA in the investigation and discipline of public safety officers.
