Use of Force by law enforcement and correctional personnel is in the news every day. This comprehensive 4-day program covers all major aspects 
of use of force. It includes the use of lethal and non-lethal force; investigation and adjudication of use of force incidents and complaints of excessive force. 
It also includes psychological and bio-mechanical aspects of the use of force.
AELE announces its revised and expanded educational program on DISCIPLINE and INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS.  This revised and expanded 
4 day program covers the legal, operational, investigative, adjudicative, and administrative aspects of public safety internal affairs and discipline.  
Recent events have focused  on the ability and credibility of public safety agencies and government to investigate, and control activities 
of their employees and the lack of accountability to the public.  We have added several new topics such as social media, cameras,
 off-duty behavior and activities,  cell phones, and racial and sexual harassment and hostile work environment.  These are in addition
 to the other topics  listed  herein.  The program will  be held  in Las Vegas October 2-5, 2017.  The faculty includes very experienced practitioners.   
For more information and to register click here: http://www.aele.org/menu-disc.html. Attendance at this program satisfies one of the
