Arrest-Related, In-Custody Deaths, Agitated Chaotic Events Instructor Program (version 6.5) Virtual Instructor-Led, online No per diem, hotel, travel, overtime costs.
The post-George Floyd culture has changed the law enforcement landscape. Peace officers are being criminally prosecuted and convicted in higher numbers, and that trend shows no signs of slowing. California enacted a statute in January 2022 that can hold peace officers accountable for individuals who die from asphyxiation if officers cause a subject's respiratory airway to be compressed or if they impair a person's breathing or respiratory capacity, which includes application of pressure or body weight to a person's neck, torso, or back. This includes methods of restraining the individual.
Colorado, too, has passed legislation classifying "excited delirium" as not being a "medical emergency," thus prohibiting the use of the sedative Ketamine on active, combative, agitated, individuals.
