We will also present you with in-depth information on the latest court rulings and nationally accepted procedures surrounding the complaint process and internal affairs investigations, employee rights, social media policies and guidelines, relevant administrative laws related to record keeping, and the releasing of information to the media. Finally, you will learn unique, effective interview techniques to prepare for and conduct interviews of complainants, witnesses, and accused officers.
