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.

Performance Benefits:

  • Learn how to investigate in a thorough, ethical, legal and objective manner.

  • Learn how to document the IA case to avoid being sued and discredited.
