Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.


This will be a discussion of Police Liability and related strategies to avoid liability or to at least minimize damages and embarrassment. Issues ranging from excessive force to wrongful arrest to unlawful home entries to First Amendment issues to cruiser involved accidents will be discussed. The focus will be on current case law and ways through policies, training and supervision to avoid or minimize the types of constitutional/civil violations identified in recent cases. There will be a focus on how a City’s policies/practices/training/supervision either positively or negatively impacted those cases. The goal of this discussion is to have a practical discussion as to how municipalities on a day to day basis can manage their police departments in a more legally sound manner. I will draw on my experience of having worked with the leadership of the Columbus Division of Police over the past 20 plus years to explain the ways police departments avoid or get in trouble.  


PRESENTER: Jeffrey S. Furbee, Chief Legal Advisor to the Columbus Division of Police
