Case & Policy Updates

What is a Case & Policy Update?

OPA distributes a bulletin via email approximately once a month highlighting topics and cases of significant interest, cases that contain information that may inform officers' day-to-day work, and pertinent policy recommendations.

The legal and policy analysis and opinions herein are OPA's own and do not state the positions of the Chief of Police or the Department. SPD employees should continue to seek the formal advice of SPD Legal, Precinct Liaisons, and the City Attorney's Office when legal questions arise in the field.
