Case Law Scholars: Duty to Intervene

The duty to intervene in a situation that involves excessive use of force by another officer is your responsibility as a sworn officer. Chief John Bouthillette, a lead instructor for the VALOR Program, and Mr. Bruce-Alan Barnard, a nationally renowned law enforcement legal educator, discuss the reality of what duty to intervene means for officers. You have no protection under the law for failing to intervene when you have the opportunity. You have a duty to intervene. Do not get caught in a moral or ethical dilemma.
