Internal investigations are essential to the efficient operation of any public safety forces agency. Investigations of this nature are crucial to our democratic system of checks and balances. The lack of clear understanding of the due process principles that govern the investigation, failing to conduct investigations properly, and not having well documented cases are the major reasons why investigators fail, cases are lost, and agencies are sued and discredited.

Command and supervisory personnel from the following agencies should attend:
Law Enforcement, Emergency 9-1-1 Communications, Corrections

  • Attendees are taught:
    The essential principles of Constitutional Due Process in an Investigation
  • Review of three leading U.S. Constitutional cases affecting due process in internal investigations: Garrity v. State of New Jersey, 385 U.S. 493 (1967), Gardner v. Broderick v. Police commissioner of New York City 392 U.S.273 (1968), Kastinger v. United States, 406 U.S. 441 (1972) Employee Representation (National Labor Relations Board v. Weingarten Inc., 420 U.S.251 (1975).
