Critical issues in police civil liability
This text indicates law, administrative practice, and police operations have become so intertwined that police administrators can no longer be effective without understanding the principles of civil liability. The text addresses the impact of judicial decisions on issues confronting police officers, such as use of force, high- risk drug enforcement operations, abandoning citizens in dangerous places, negligent operation of emergency vehicles, failure to arrest intoxicated drivers, negligence at accident scenes, and death and suicide in detention. Findings of police science research are incorporated into legal discussions to place the law in a context meaningful to police officers and executives. The text also covers the scope and impact of police civil liability, fundamentals of State tort law and Federal liability law, and shifting concepts of police civil liability and law enforcement. A list of cases is included.
