Brown & Blue Research and Training Presents:

The Duty to Intervene -- the 8th Circuit

ONLINE -- 60 Minutes

Recent high-profile cases have lead to the consideration of whether and when extent law enforcement officers have a legal duty to intervene as they observe uses of force. This course is a basic overview of the law of the duty to intervene as that duty has been articulated in actual cases in the jurisdiction of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, including the states of Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota. 

This is an ONLINE course that can be used remotely over a one year period as time allows officers to complete the training.  Once the officer has completed the training, he or she will receive a certificate of completion for training record keeping purposes.
