WHAT POLICE CAN AND CANNOT DO IN APPREHENDING A SUSPECT
Presenter: Dr. Robert Little, Professor of Criminal Justice and Department Chair, High Point University. Learn Police principles in the use of force when dealing with a violent, combative criminal suspect at a crime scene, or while chasing/attempting to apprehend the combative felon. Understand the major duties and tasks of the different personnel at a major crime scene: 1. the uniformed officer who is the first responder, 2. the detective assigned to the case, and 3. the CSI technician (criminalist). Bring to this informative exchange your questions about the law-enforcement situations occurring in your writing and get the right answers — which too many of today’s writers get just wrong enough to harm the credibility of their work and most likely its very publish-ability. Co-sponsored by Sisters in Crime & High Point Library.
