Effectively Prosecuting Boating Under the Influence Cases: Enhanced Training for Courtroom Preparation
It’s not just enough to gather sufficient evidence to make a solid BUI arrest…being able to follow through to help your prosecutor get a conviction of the offender is critical. This session will highlight a joint venture between NASBLA and the National District Attorney’s Association/National Traffic Law Center. This effort has led to new enhancements to the national BUI training courses aimed at improving an officer’s ability to prepare thorough, accurate and effective arrest reports, plan and participate in pre-trial conferences, and present relevant facts of the BUI case at trial.
