On September 21, 2017, Siana Bellwoar attorney, Christopher Gerber, presented a police risk management training course entitled, Bullet Proof Defense on behalf of the Chester County Department of Emergency Services. The course covered the fundamentals of civil rights lawsuits filed against municipalities, their chiefs of police and other command staff involving claims arising under the First, Fourth & Fourteenth Amendments. Practical guidance was also offered on how to conduct effective internal affairs investigations, which are often the focus of civil rights lawsuits. Mr. Gerber will be conducting this course on behalf of other law enforcement agencies throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. If you are interested in this program or programs that address other areas of police liability, contact Christopher P. Gerber, Esquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
