Since the police serve as such an important aspect of our society in regards to public safety, a police-involved lawsuit may arise if the police and their method of enforcement are called into question. Police expert witnesses may also be called upon for other cases related to criminal activity, as law enforcement practices may be a major factor in such situations. In any case, police expert witnesses should be knowledgeable in the proper method of police protocol regarding such areas as the use of force, search warrants, narcotics investigations, police pursuits, patrol procedures and tactics, peace officer standards and training, and other such practices for various situations in need of law enforcement.
Police expert witnesses may also be retained to offer expert opinions regarding the proper use of ballistic and firearms in relation to law enforcement. The utilization of training as a way of maintaining police risk management is very important in preventing the misuse of guns, police abuse, officer involved shootings, and other matters related to police brutality and/or use of force.
Police expert witnesses may also have a background in various types of security, each of which also requires a certain standards of conduct, the violation of which can lead to inadequate security and potential lawsuits. Events security, crowd control, occupant restraints, jail procedures, and other facets of security programs are all within the experience of many police expert witnesses.
