The ILACP “Section 1983” Risk Management Seminar:
What current case law says about excessive force, arrests, and avoiding lawsuits

Course Description: This 4-hour program uses videos and scenarios in the context of U.S. Supreme Court case law focusing primarily on excessive force issues related to both deadly force and non-deadly force.

Course Goals: The goal of this course is for chiefs and command staff to get the latest case law on these topics and learn approaches to department policies related to Section 1983 lawsuits and focusing primarily on excessive force and unconstitutional arrests. You will learn what Section 1983 is -- a provision of the law that allows people to sue municipal officials for a violation of civil rights. 

Main presenter: Dale Anderson, an author, attorney, and popular training in Illinois. He is an expert on the 4th Amendment and Section 1983, and he is one of the trainers in the popular CourtSmart program. He has been training in Illinois for a long time and recently entered into a partnership with the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police to expand his online training statewide. 

Who should attend: Chiefs and command staff 

The Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board will provide 4 CE's for completion of the seminar
