Winning Strategies to Prevent Evidence from Being Suppressed
Whether it is a stop and frisk, walk and talk or 911 emergency call for assistance, police officers conduct warrantless seizures and searches every day and it is our job to insure that the evidence they seize does not get suppressed. It has been my experience as a prosecutor that sometimes it can be difficult to justify a police officer’s actions.
In this presentation prosecutors will learn how to respond to a defendant’s motion to suppress. Prosecutors will watch video clips of warrantless searches and seizures. We will learn how to determine the controlling issues and how to set forth a persuasive argument on these issues. Attendees will review the most recent case law on warrantless searches and seizures. We will discuss how to prepare your police officer to testify and the importance of developing a strategy with your officers to prevent the evidence from being suppressed. This presentation has received great reviews from prosecutors.
