law-degree[1]

2018 was a year of many legal changes and challenges.  We saw amended laws and changes to legal procedure which directly effect the way we police.  We experienced challenge after challenge to how we view protected activities, and saw many victories for both the public and police.

For 2019, we are focusing on training to ensure proper administration of justice and rights in our daily routines.  We will be focusing specifically with labor law, protected activities, solicitors, immigration protests, and First Amendment audits.  The first step in protecting yourself and your agency in knowledge and proper application of laws.

Instruction will be provided by Lieutenant Shawn Freeman of the Redondo Beach Police Department, Sergeant Ryan Brett of the Corona Police Department, and other guests speakers related to labor and union groups.

This is an opportunity to connect and share information among agencies, and to make vital partnerships in the on-going area of labor issues and legal challenges facing law enforcement.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 2018 TRAINING: LABOR LAW UPDATES AND FIRST AMENDMENT AUDITS

Attendees received receive an overview regarding the function of law enforcement when handling labor disputes between organized labor and management. Other labor relations education included a legal update on current trespass/public access laws applicable to any demonstration or picket line situation, including the latest case law on shopping mall access. Laws regarding First Amendment audits were discussed in detail by keynote speaker, Attorney Scott MacLatchie. Finally, an overview of upcoming labor disputes that may have affected your agency.

ATTENDEE'S FEEDBACK

This was my first time attending the annual CALRO conference, and I found it to be very informative, insightful, and definitely worth my time! The guest speakers and instructors were very experienced, had a lot of expertise in their respective fields, and provided a lot of information to make my job a lot easier when dealing with the differences between labor actions and expressive activity! I would highly recommend anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge, as it relates to labor action and expressive activity, to attend this conference, especially for law enforcement supervisors and management.
