Peace Officer Standards & Training Certifications (POST)
The Team from Law Enforcement Solutions Group are educated and have a deep knowledge and understanding of the implications of the new police reform laws around the country. Specifically, in Massachusetts, where the new POST guidelines were implemented as of December 2020.
Effective December 1, 2021, all law enforcement personnel in Massachusetts will now rely on a statue for the authority to use force instead of the prior common law and constitutional law practice.
With the newest police reform legislation, law enforcement officers must act to prevent excessive force.
Legislation dictates that “when and if” an officer has been proven to commit a violation of the use of force standards, the officer “shall” be decertified as a police officer.
This POST commission additionally will have the authority to monitor allegations of misconduct, demand information related to the internal investigation, and be able to conduct their own independent investigations.
