Review consensus policies and national standards.
This material updates discussions on the admissibility of Model Policies issued by the International Association of Chiefs of Police through expert testimony that those policies have received general acceptance in the law enforcement community. A jury can then evaluate the reasonableness of the police conduct at issue by comparing it to those national standards. This white paper reviews case law that provides helpful analysis on the standards for admission and exclusion of expert testimony and discusses while no one organization sets national standards on police policies and procedures, several organizations issue policy and position papers that reflect generally accepted practices and current trends.
