View On Demand (Recorded June 24, 2022)

The New York Professional Policing Act (PPA) of 2021 has placed an unprecedented requirement on all police agencies – comply with the PPA or face decertification. Mandated hiring standards and practices as well as required decertification reporting are already in effect. Are your policies and practices updated to reflect these requirements? 

Every law enforcement agency should be committed to hiring and retaining members who can be properly entrusted with the role of protecting their community, and the PPA supports this goal. Join us to learn more about the legislation and other strategies your agency should explore to reduce risk associated with hiring. 

You’ll Learn:

  • The requirements of the PPA and key dates for compliance reporting
  • Why the PPA mandates represent sound hiring and retention practices
  • Additional issues pertaining to hiring and retention—beyond the PPA—that agencies must address to reduce risk and better serve the community
  • An overview of the Governor’s recent executive order on terrorism and the recent updates to the Extreme Risk Protection Order legislation
