Dangerous Crossroads Ahead: The Intersection Of The First & Fourth Amendment

Our Law Enforcement agencies are increasingly encountering citizens boldly asserting what they think are constitutional rights guaranteed by the First and Fourth Amendments. This course examines the crossroads where these two constitutional principles intersect and provides practical tips for dealing with people who may be legitimately exercising constitutional rights, and others who are actively trying to bait officers into overreaction. Topics to be explored include refusal to identify, refusal to answer questions, dealing with bystanders, profanity towards officers, filming of police activity and police facilities, related officer safety concerns, weapons pat downs, and the seizure of cameras or cell phones that have recorded police activity. Training will be provided on multiple dates in separate locations.

The Bryan County SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) presentation is to educate police chiefs on the benefits of partnering with youth led organizations in their community. This partnership will change the community in regards to the perception of police, as well as other stakeholders. Prevention, cultural competency and sustainability are key elements that help engage community members in the problem solving process. Youth are resources to discovering root causes in community problems. By uniting with youth, you are creating a small “task-force” that can help build relations within the community. There are current youth groups you can partner with in your community or you can develop your own. This year BCHS SADD was one of three school chosen to present at a national level conference in D.C. They are also one of the few youth led Drug Free Coalitions (DFC) in national. By investing in youth leadership, you are investing in a better community and future. This training should provide you with ideas on how to start partnering with youth and the benefits of those relationship.
