Course Hours: 24.0 Hours
Through classroom presentation and discussion, this course provides Georgia officers with an overview of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights by emphasizing the roles of the 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 14th Amendments in law enforcement operations. Additional topics include: the State and Federal court system, legal authority, police - citizen encounters, lineups and pre-trial identifications, interviews, confessions, and Miranda, Katz and Jones searches, the exclusionary rule, Title 17, case law update, and legal research and resources.
Upon completion of the class, officers will be better informed about the nature of procedural justice, more confident in their ability to apply its tenets fairly and unbiasedly during interactions with the public, and in a manner protective of the rights of all.
Due to the nature and the volume of material presented in this class, attendance is restricted to certified peace officers of the State of Georgia.
