The WV Public Safety Expo is an annual event in Charleston, WV that gives public safety officials an opportunity to network, obtain training, and enhance their skills in a centralized location with some of the best resources in the country. In 2012, the Expo saw approximately 500 participants over the course of five days!
The WV Public Safety Expo was created in 2008 by a group of public safety officials from various agencies within Kanawha County. Members of the Expo Committee are appointed by their agencies and serve as volunteers. Since public safety officials who volunteer their time operate the Expo, keeping costs as low as possible while maximizing training opportunities is their goal.
LEOTTA supports the efforts of the Expo Committee and is proud to have been asked to present so many topics at this year's conference. We hope to see you there!

Legal updates affecting law enforcement technology and enforcement issues (UPDATED December 7, 2014):
Miranda-Investigative Detention: In weapons offense conviction, denial of motion to suppress statements was not error where Miranda warning was not required because defendant volunteered statements on his own, rather than answering question. State v. Blanks - 2014-Ohio-1658
Social Media Employment Law: The OGC reviewed a company social medial policy which required employees to post a specific disclaimer that they were sharing their own views and not the views of the company if they identified themselves as company employees on any website or blog.The OGC found this provision to be lawful. It explained that posting this disclaimer would not be burdensome for employees to implement or infringe on their Section 7 right to discuss working conditions. NLRB Advice Memorandums
U.S. Supreme Court Rules Warrant Required for Cell Phone Search: In a sweeping opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts resoundingly rejected arguments that searches of digital devices for information are comparable to searches law enforcement officers often conduct for contraband after making an arrest. The chief justice went even further, arguing that the privacy concerns at stake in the search of a phone are even more acute than those involved in the search of a home — the place traditionally considered most sacrosanct under American law.
Wiretapping: The Illinois Supreme Court recently declared unconstitutional a state law criminalizing the recording of conversations without the consent of all parties. However, significant risks remain for companies and individuals in Illinois who secretly record conversations. People v. Clark 2014 IL 1097190
