  • (1888PressRelease) May 18, 2019 - Attorney, Lance LoRusso, author of the highly acclaimed books, When Cops Kill: The Aftermath of a Critical Incident and Blue News will be conducting a two-day training session for members of the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) on May 20th and 21st at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square, 300 W. Station Square Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. The training will run from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM both days and is limited to FOP members only, lodge attorneys, and active law enforcement officers. LoRusso is a nationally recognized expert on the use of force and how to handle the aftermath of such incidents.

    “I am honored to be conducting this training for members of the Pennsylvania FOP, said Lance LoRusso, author of When Cops Kill and Blue News. “Far too often when a law enforcement officer is involved in a deadly encounter, both they and their law enforcement department are not prepared for the media, the social media, the public outcry, and the investigations that follow. This training will navigate officers and their attorneys on how to deal with this.”

    Among the events LoRusso is covering are:
    • Examine Federal and State laws related to LEO’s use of force.
    • Examine officer’s post incident statements and recent legal rulings related to Garrity and their effect on officers and agencies
    • Discuss the strategic role of training in the aftermath of critical incidents
    • Examine the role and management of formal and informal media responses
    • The tactics and strategies regarding communication with and through professional media sources.
    • The role of “informal media,” which includes blogs, social media, and comment sections attached to professional news sources.
    • Attendees will learn how to effectively communicate before, during, and after a critical incident, as well as how to protect the involved officers and the union.
    • The role and use of body cameras for LEO’s
    • The role of the officer’s attorney at the scene and subsequent investigations
    • The role and use of Expert Witness
