“I am honored to be a seminar panelist at the FOP’s Legal Counselor Seminar” said Lance LoRusso. “Law enforcement officers are the unsung heroes of America. Very often law enforcement officers face a violent altercation and are unprepared for what happens next. We have seen lately how law enforcement has fallen under attack in the media and by politicians for performing their duties during a deadly alteration. This seminar will address what really happens and dispel the misperceptions in the media. When Cops Kill is dedicated to and for the brave American men and women who put their lives on the line daily for each of us.
When Cops Kill: The Aftermath of a Critical Incident deals with the aftermath of a shooting or violent altercation and the array of issues that confront law enforcement officers after the event. The book deals with the media coverage that will follow such an incident, the investigation, the potential of a civil lawsuit and how to deal emotionally with such an incident. The book is an excellent resource for law enforcement officers and their family members for the day when the call of duty leads to more than a random warrant being served or ticket being issued. LoRusso draws on his hands-on experience as a former law enforcement officer as well as an attorney who represents law enforcement officers. Proceeds from the sale of When Cops Kill (bluelinelawyer.com) are being donated to charities for law enforcement officers and their families.
