Program Description 


This program will offer municipal police chiefs and command staff practical guidance on the legal requirements that arise from the Supreme Court’s decisions in Brady v. Maryland, Giglio v. United States and their progeny in today’s litigious environment.


The presenters will discuss hypothetical scenarios that are based upon real-life cases with a focus upon the following issues:


  • How do the courts define Brady material that must be disclosed to the defense?
  • When must a Chief of Police report misconduct to the District Attorney?
  • What is the liability that arises from a failure to disclose Brady material?
  • Discussion of the Chester County Brady/Giglio Protocols
  • What are the implications of disclosure of Brady material under Pennsylvania labor law?
  • Does a police officer have due process rights in connection with “do not call” lists?
