New York Law School
Police Use of Force: NYPD’s New Policy
2/4/16, 6 PM-7:40 PM
New York Law School, Auditorium
185 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013
In October 2015, the New York City Police Department adopted a new policy and rules addressing the use of police force. The guidelines establish policies for training, reporting, and disciplining officers. In a press conference, Police Commissioner William Bratton stated that these guidelines could provide a “national template” for how to investigate and report incidents involving police force. Please join us for a panel discussion, with representatives from the CCRB, the New York Civil Liberties Union, and the NYPD, as well as a prosecutor and a criminal defense practitioner. The panelists will discuss the scope of the problem, the wisdom and efficacy of the new policy, and whether this new step will suffice to address the use of excessive force in policing.
Attorneys will be provided 2.0 hours of Professional Practice CLE credit. These CLE credits are transitional and nontransitional.
Light refreshments will be provided.
