Operation Save OurSelves:
Throughout the United States, law enforcement officers are being physically harmed by criminals and attacked by the media at a historical rate. Even more alarming is the increasing number of police officers being relieved of duty, terminated, and even prosecuted for on-duty related incidents.
OPERATION Save OurSelves is designed to be an innovative method to arm law enforcement officers with the ultimate weapon: knowledge. The instructor is an experienced gang detective, who is also an attorney at law. The unique cop-lawyer dichotomy allows a qualified law enforcement officer teaching the legal concepts from a street cop's prospective.
OPERATION Save Ourselves has identified four major problematic areas that law enforcement officers encounter. (i) Starting from where police work is embarked, the streets; (ii) Then to the interrogation room where statements are obtained and evidence are gathered; (iii) transitioning to presenting evidence to the prosecutor (discovery), and (iv) finally ending with taking the case to the foundation of American jurisprudence, jury trials.
