Training Sessions:

This opening keynote will set the tone for the 2020 DLG Use of Force Summit. 2020 will focus on identifying national issues, providing statistical clarity, and looking for a way forward together through legal protection, better policy, better training, and community involvement.
This keynote will discuss the importance of words and their interpretation, especially when it comes to interpreting actions in use of force incidents. Words matter, how you use them matters, and how you interpret them matters.
This keynote will review the legal standards applicable to policy, training, and supervison for the success of your department, ensuring that your members have the guidance, training, and knowledge to address the use of force challenges before them in today’s world.
This seminar will review the Court’s interpretation of De-Escalation and the clearly established law related to mental health response. The Courts often analyze the concepts regarding the need for using force and whether the use of force was related to the need to use force. Courts have a tendency to discuss De-Escalation in situations when officers are dealing with individuals known to have or that appear to be suffering from mental illness, or when individuals are suspected or are under the effects of excited delirium. This course will review the tactic of De-Escalation and its intent to place officers in a position of advantage when dealing with irrational, unpredictable, or suicidal persons.
This seminar will examine and identify common legal standards applicable to the Use of Force; specifically, the interpretation of words that are used every day in evaluating an officer’s use of force. Buzzwords include Necessity, De-escalation, Proportionality, and Incapacitation. This seminar will assess and interpret the legal standard that officers should use regarding the amount of force necessary and reasonable to accomplish lawful objectives and to control a situation, effect an arrest, overcome resistance to arrest, or to defend themselves or others from harm.
This seminar will focus on legal analysis, guidance and the interpretation of current laws addressing agency liability and current police practices in effective and constitutional operations. The training will review the legal standards applicable to Federal Civil Rights Law 42 U.S.C. §1983 by examining the legal standards applicable to Agency Liability pursuant to the holding of the United States Supreme Court in Monell v. Department of Social Services. This training will review the manner in which Agency liability is established and the importance of understanding the Deliberate Indifferent Standard, along with the Courts interpretation of the same.
This seminar examines the who, what, when, where, and why of interviews for force investigations. From the unique aspects and challenges of interviewing a law enforcement officer, to when an interview should be conducted after a critical incident, this seminar cuts through the controversy with a science-based approach for maximizing memory retrieval and communication.

Lieutenant Dillon, a highly sought-after speaker and trainer, has trained and consulted civilian and law enforcement use of force issues and programs throughout North America and Europe.

Training Session:

This keynote is to prepare supervisors, investigators, and management for the proper collecting methods for use of force reporting. This training session is designed for executives and command who assign, review, report, or investigate police use of force incidents. When it comes to use of force analysis, agencies should learn what to track and how to track/report use of force at a granular level. Most agencies use broad categories making it difficult to truly determine the amount, deployments, effectiveness and patterns of officer behavior and incidents. By learning to identify patterns and practices is the availability to prevent reasonable foreseeable incidents thus mitigating liability.

Paul Butler

Paul Butler is an internationally renowned speaker, presenter, instructor, and entertainer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication with a concentration in Culture and Communication, as well as an associate degree in Criminal Justice.

Training Session:

This motivational keynote will cover what it takes to be a good professional and highlight the power of being a good person. We will focus on how to take individual talents and apply them to a group setting to make an unstoppable and productive team. It is Butler’s belief that the ability to lead is present in everyone, regardless of your rank in an organization or irrespective of your situation in life. There are common characteristics that respected people and effective leaders share – most of these traits are developed by the individual rather than through the position you hold. This presentation will cover some of the most important leadership traits, as well as how each individual can use the lessons of yesterday to overcome the challenges of today and capitalize on the opportunities of tomorrow.

Training Sessions:

This seminar will provide investigators with guidance on how to effectively analyze video to identify hidden evidence in use of force investigations.
This keynote will examine many of the high profile cases that have formed the current rhetoric about police Use of Force. We will explore how effectively the news media secures video evidence, analyzes it, and quickly turns it around for public consumption. Without constraints for accuracy, and accountability, many broadcasters deliver their own powerful spin on the visual evidence, often determining the public mood and consolidating opinion against police. Participants will discover how some media outlets have developed their own forensic video teams with specialized capabilities, ensuring their subscribers are exposed to the visual information even before investigators are aware of its existence. We will also discuss policy recommendations and outline proven tactics for agencies to gain access to the most critical visual record of a police force event before the evidence blindsides senior police executives on the nightly news.
This seminar will review cases where video is misinterpreted based on a lack of knowledge and proper ability to evaluate the video evidence.

He is an international speaker and instructor for Calibre Press, NLEFIA, LOCKUP and LouKa Tactical.

Training Sessions:

This seminar will analyze recent use of force incidents by dissecting the behavior of the offender and more importantly, the potential thoughts and behavioral processes of the officer(s) involved. This seminar will place special consideration on poor or ill-advised tactics, ineffective communication, a lack of personal control, and/or a misunderstanding of acute stress that led the officer(s) to escalate the event unintentionally and unconsciously. With a goal of avoiding the avoidable, this seminar will work backwards from the moment force was used and honestly assess whether the officer, by action or lack of action, contributed to its ultimate need.
This seminar will focus on the demand for officers to make “the right” decision at all times. Human interactions under stress will never yield a perfect right or wrong outcome. Trainers, leaders, attorneys, and all involved in the process of preparing and evaluating police events need to understand what actually takes place and contributes to decisions under stress. This seminar will break apart the science we know today on decision making and how working the “art” of assisting that process may eventually lead to more ideal outcomes.

Training Sessions:

This seminar will discuss how the duty to intervene and bystander liability have suddenly become household terms across the country, with many civilians touting such concepts as innovative and revolutionary to the law enforcement profession. These terms are not new, however, and those actually in the profession know as much. This session will cover the concepts of the duty to intervene, applicable legal and policy standards, and modern approaches to these concepts.
This seminar will discuss the variety of potential injuries that law enforcement officers face during training or while performing their duties on the job. Agencies should be aware of some of the legal implications involved when officers are injured and how to navigate the potential minefields posed by those injuries.

Training Sessions:

This seminar will review the concept of De-Escalation is here to stay! Though the concept has been around forever, we know the words we use can and should be used tactically to reduce the likelihood of using force.
This seminar will review challenges departments face to recruit, train, and retain our current generation of officers, including increased dependence on technology, an uncertain policing environment, and a generation of applicants with different values than our veteran officers.
This seminar will guide use of force review for field supervisors as well as common force scenarios facing our officers daily. Supervisors will be given a systematic approach to review non-deadly force used by patrol officers.
This seminar will cover a panel review process to ensure officers are using reasonable force, influence future training, address equipment needs, and make policy decisions. Force review boards connect policy, training, and force used in the field with the review process so departments can make necessary changes to force decisions made in the field.
This seminar will review what departments should be doing far in advance of a high profile use of force incident and remind ourselves of the mission in policing. Unfortunately, there is less to gain from attempting to explain this process and much more to gain from understanding why our force is being critically reviewed.

Training Sessions:

This seminar will focus on the fact that law enforcement use of deadly force has become one of the most visible and controversial aspects of the U.S. criminal justice system. Yet, most police involved deaths never rise to the level of public consciousness. The controversy and public discourse tend to center on handful of cases in which the outcome does not seem match the actual threat the officer faced in hindsight. These cases often involve elements of human error and are typically investigated against a backdrop of intense political, public, and organizational scrutiny. This seminar explores strategies for investigating and/or reviewing these difficult cases.
This seminar examines the impact of pre-event information on officer decision-making and use of force outcomes. Using the results of several large experimental studies and a number of real world case studies, you’ll learn about how priming and confirmation bias affect decision-making during critical incidents and strategies for accounting for them during the investigative process.
