Understanding Police Investigations

CLE Hours: 1.5

CLE Credit: Substantive

Course Level: Basic

In this session, Mr. Jurkofsky will be helping paralegals understand how an officer investigates an incident, and what goes into writing a police incident report. They will explore the different aspects of an investigation (either criminal or civil) and how to read reports. They will also cover what impact a test has on an incident, including what impact there may be if a test was not conducted. The goal is that paralegals will leave this session with a better understanding of why an officer does/does not conduct a test, how to talk to an officer about the findings or lack thereof, and why photographs and police interviews are important.
