POLICY DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT
PSIAI provides a complete service of reviewing & writing High Risk Critical Task Policies and Procedures – which has shown to contribute to 90% of all litigation for law enforcement and jail/correction facilities.
Depending on the need and resources of the requesting Agency, PSIAI may conduct critical task operations policy review on a single policy, multiple policies, or all critical task policies. PSIAI utilizes its Legal & Professional Advisory Board to review policies and provide recommendations or technical assistance on the policies submitted. All policies reviewed and/or written are state specific with State legislative mandates, US Circuit Court of Appeals decisions, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and cited to CALEA and American Correction Association mandates
RISK MANAGEMENT CONSULTATION
PSIAI provides consultations with risk managers and Law Enforcement Administrators regarding on-going claims and preventive measures that can be taken to reduce liability in law enforcement agencies before the exposure occurs.
LPSIAI is involved in a number of cases each year defending law enforcement and jail/corrections liability claims. This case development provides us with an opportunity to identify trends in lawsuits. The trends help us stay ahead of the curve in policy development and providing consultation for claims against your agencies.
PSIAI has an on-going affiliation with over 60 law enforcement experts who are nationally recognized in their particular law enforcement field.
Unlike many expert services that operate as a single person entity, PSIAI takes the team approach and can provide a multi-disciplinary approach to a single case where doing so will enhance the law enforcement agency’s defense.
