Developing Constitutional and Effective Policies
Law enforcement operational standards dictate that police departments develop and maintain sound and proper policies and procedures.
The policies and procedures of Police Departments across the United States are the core liability protectors of the agency.
Policies that are comprehensive and current are the backbone of effective and constitutional policing. It is not enough, however, to simply have sound policies. Officers must be trained on the policies, supervisors must hold officers accountable, and, when the policies are violated, a sound disciplinary process should be engaged.
A Police Department’s policies and procedures shall reflect and express the Department’s core values and priorities, while providing clear direction to ensure that officers lawfully, effectively, and ethically carry out their law enforcement responsibilities. Daigle Law Group developed the Policy Center to meet the increasing need of Police Departments across the United States. We are dedicated to working with Departments to develop sound, effective policies based on constitutional accreditation standards.
Daigle Law Group operates under a philosophy that every Police Department is unique in its operation and structure. We work to mold proper standards into the operation and structure of the individual agency. Our clients range in size from small to very large departments, each with unique challenges.

Developing Constitutional & Effective Policies
Daigle Law Group, in collaboration with and PowerDMS, began this project by identifying, evaluating and collecting examples of best practices related to policy writing. Based on our review, we hosted a select group of law enforcement industry experts for a Law Enforcement Policy Development Summit. These individuals joined together to identify accepted and recommended practices to develop and distribute policies and procedures, ensuring effective and constitutional operations.
