PTSD Presumption in the Workers’ Compensation Law, Presented by MCIT staff
Although recovery for a purely mental occupational injury of PTSD has been compensable for the past several years, recent legislation has created a presumption of occupational relatedness for first responders. This session gives an overview of the law and what it may mean for sheriffs’ offices.
Lessons Learned from Large-scale Events, Presented by Jason Hiveley, attorney, Iverson Reuvers Condon
From the Republican National Convention to the Super Bowl, Minnesota has hosted several large scale events. Even if the event does not have a political purpose, public protests have become a common occurrence and have unique considerations in policing. This session discusses some legal issues surrounding policing large-scale events and lessons learned from past experiences.
The First Amendment and Policing, Presented by Bill Everett, attorney, Everett and VanderWiel
From public protests to employees’ use of social media, First Amendment considerations are as prevalent in law enforcement as the Fourth Amendment. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the freedom to associate are cornerstones of individual civil rights. However, as with any rights, the scope of those are not absolute. This session provides an overview of the legal contours of those rights, common scenarios that arise around them and strategies for addressing conflicting rights and duties.
