Amid national calls for police reform, policy has become a prime target for change. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s four-pronged police reform plan puts pressure on law enforcement agencies across the state to review and revise key policies, including use of force. Reform bills are also pending before the Michigan legislature.

Rather than just waiting to be told what to do, law enforcement needs to take the initiative and do the right things for the right reasons.

Administrators and trainers must be careful not to make policy changes that create unrealistic expectations or unforeseen consequences that can be bad for the police and the community. In this webinar, Chief Mike Ranalli (Ret.) will examine select police practices that are currently facing national scrutiny and are part of the Michigan police reform proposals.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding the issues driving the Michigan legislation around topics such as chokeholds, the duty to intervene and warrant execution and how effective policy should be developed
  • Recent 6th Circuit case law that should inform your policies and training
  • The need for policy to account for human performance under stressful conditions
