MAJ is pleased to announce that the PORAC Institute has invited two of its attorneys—Alison Berry Wilkinson (of counsel) and David L. Kruckenberg—to present a class entitled "Avoiding Decertification for Bias” on August 9, 2023 at its Headquarters in Sacramento.
This 4-hour course will discuss California Senate Bill 2 and the type of conduct that the Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Accountability Division will likely find to demonstrate bias that is inconsistent with peace officer duties. The course will not only provide guidance on what officers can do now to avoid decertification for bias, but also insight into how labor organizations can use the meet-and-confer process to protect their members. With recruitment and retention an increasingly dire issue for law enforcement—officers, agencies, and labor organizations can ill-afford the consequences of self-inflicted wounds that could cause capable and seasoned officers to be removed from the profession. Education and training are the best methods to ensure you and your membership are operating within the POST guidelines.
This course is open to both PORAC members and non-members. Space is limited, so register now!
