A police practices and procedures expert witness is vital when a case involves the disregard of police department rules and accepted methods of conduct. It is of the utmost importance to have an expert who has experience in law enforcement who has deep knowledge of any and all police practices and procedures.
A police policy and procedures expert can be of great assistance in cases of use of force, vehicle stops, search and seizure, narcotics enforcement, and police stop, question, and frisk. There are many other cases that fit the bill as well.
Experience in the field of law enforcement is necessary for the police practices and procedures expert. Since so many different types of incidents involve policy and procedures the expert must have experience working all different types of cases.
The police policy and procedures expert witness should have knowledge of the disciplinary process. Oftentimes cases are presented when the disciplinary process has not begun and the expert always will question why this is.
Those who have no experience in the field will have little to no knowledge as to the inner workings of the department in question. Experienced police policy and procedures expert witnesses have that crucial experience.
A competent police policy and procedures expert witness will always request to review any and all case files-no matter how minor. It is only with this full knowledge of the case at hand that an assessment can be made.
A non-biased, competent police policy and procedures expert witness must not be a police apologist. There is no room in investigations and assessments for any bias.
