 An update on the domino effects from McNeil, including the challenges of finding roles for officers whose testimony may be impeached

 Appropriate use of social media both in investigations and internally

 Meeting the duty to accommodate in the police context

 Top civil cases of the year, including negligent investigation, gross negligence, duty to warn and other causes of action
