The 4th Amendment and the Police Use of Force (offered at Thayer Public Library in Braintree)  

Participants in this course will examine the two leading Supreme Court cases on the use of force by police officers, and recent proposals by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) and the International Chiefs of Police challenging the “Objectively Reasonable” standard and the use of the “Force Continuum” as a policy or as training tools. Participants will review and discuss current policies and training standards of three major U.S. police agencies and examine actual cases of officer involved use of force.
