Body-worn Camera Records: Law, Policy and Practice $385

Provides current state specific legal requirements for these digital records.

Seminar Overview

Who should attend: Anyone who manages, publishes or receives requests for video records.

The management and dissemination of BWC recordings is a rather, albeit unnecessarily, contentious issue in public safety. Whether or not the video shall be released according to the law is one matter while the decision to voluntarily release it is another. These issues are often conflated with the preservation of videos as “evidence”- a separate matter altogether from public records law.

In this 2 day course, in-depth practical information including legal requirements and best practices combined with a hands-on policy development exercise will be provided by subject matter experts from law enforcement.  Topics include:

  •  BWC agency Philosophy, Policy, Privacy and Procedure
  •  The 3 consumers of video: the agency, the courts, and the public
  • Transparency: why have body-worn cameras?
  • Developing policy: activation/de-activation, categorization, retention, notifications, release
  • Public records/FOIA laws

Crime Stats & UCR/NIBRS for the Police Executive $159*

Everything you need to know about your agency’s numbers.

Seminar Overview

Who should attend:

Anyone interested in UCR/NIBRS crime reporting, accuracy and compliance.

NOTE: If the location you attend is in a state that is still reporting via the Summary Reporting System, the course will cover both SRS and NIBRS in order to prepare you for the transition to NIBRS. If the location is in a NIBRS reporting state, the course will focus only on NIBRS.

Reading a UCR report is one thing; articulating the numbers to those who ask about them is something entirely different. We teach you what you need to know to understand, explain, review, and report your crime statistics correctly. Learn why your crime analyst’s numbers are always different than Records. Ensure that your agency stays out of the headlines and free of questionable crime reporting.

Topics include:

  • Transitioning to NIBRS (for SRS states)
  • Is your agency recording and reporting crime correctly?
  • Dealing with the media.
  • The difference between UCR stats and statute based stats.
  • Are your officers reporting multiple incident cases correctly?
  • Validating and presenting UCR stats.
  • How are crimes counted?
  • How are cases cleared?
  • Arrests vs. clearances.
  • When can you really exceptionally clear a case?
  • Learn the most common causes of erroneous stats

Included Material

Seminar Overview

Who should attend: personnel who manage and oversee the proper management of evidence related records. Learn what the law requires. How long should evidence be kept? What about the records associated with the case?

This class will address the confusion between what evidence is public record and what public records are considered evidence as well as:
  • When does evidence become a public record?
  • Is there a difference between the two?
  • When the court authorizes evidence to be disposed, is it okay to destroy it?
  • Are there additional retention requirements beyond the closure of a case?
  • What about evidence that has met the statute of limitation?

Law Enforcement Records Management Cohort Program $395

Implement what you learned in the Building a Model Police Records Unit seminar.

Overview

Learn to lead, plan, collaborate, obtain buy-in, execute and transform. This course provides you the tools and skills to build and implement a forward-thinking, modernized and efficient agency-wide information management program.

Who should attend: records personnel, administrative staff

While at its core is a two-day workshop, this is an ongoing program where attending scholars will become part of a peer group who will serve to support, mentor and advise each other on an ongoing basis in the development and implementation of a customized model police records management plan for your agency.

During the workshop, moderated by PRI, your group will develop an actionable plan to bring back to your agency and the skills needed to get it approved and implemented, guided by the 4 pillars of a model police records operation: 1) sound business process 2) people’s performance 3) legal compliance and 4) modern technology.

Utilizing an online system, your groups will maintain contact, share ideas, provide feedback, network and develop career-long relationships. In addition to the practical education this program provides, the connections you make will be even more valuable.

The plan you will develop will include the strategies, risks, timelines, policy and training requirements for:

  • Developing and tracking real-time key performance indicators
  • Annual compliance with retention schedules across the agency
  • Effective policy governing report writing, public records, report corrections, management process
  • Selecting the right systems for managing records and data
  • Standardizing and maximizing the use of CAD/RMS
