Course Description

Significant liability and public relations issues are emerging due to the practical and policy challenges associated with body-worn camera programs across the country.  Deciding to equip officers with body-worn cameras is just the first step, as policy guidance and training must accompany the deployment of the new technology. 

This evolving landscape necessitates training that incorporates the latest statutory legal developments, court decisions and noteworthy case studies from throughout the country. This webinar will assist law enforcement professionals in crafting and implementing policies that reflect an understanding of these areas of emerging legal liability.  

Attorney Matt Dolan will discuss topics including:

  • Should YOUR agency adopt body-worn cameras?
  • The costs associated with implementation—the cost of the camera may just be the beginning
  • State-specific open records laws—how they could affect your decision to implement body-worn cameras
  • When poorly implemented programs actually weaken public trust
  • Balancing officer safety and public transparency
