Learn the complex rules of Miranda to ensure you obtain admissible statements!
Many of us were able to recite the Miranda warnings from watching TV long before we became cops. Although we can recite them, many of us don’t really understand them. This class focuses on the basics of Miranda, when officers are required to advise a suspect of his or her Miranda rights, and how to obtain a valid waiver. There is a myth that only detectives advise subjects of their Miranda warnings. Not anymore! The use of body-worn cameras has given defense attorneys a front row seat to police citizen encounters to argue “custody.”
This class will teach officers how to obtain valid statements and capture them on their body-worn cameras.
