This is an online legal studies course. The lesson addresses recent court decisions providing guidance to law enforcement officers regarding: the requirements of Missouri’s Implied Consent law and its regulations, including whether an officer can bypass the Implied Consent law entirely and proceed to obtaining a search warrant for a blood draw; the ability of officers to extend a traffic stop to briefly investigate additional criminal activity for which the officer has developed reasonable suspicion during the course of the stop; when an officer has a duty to provide prompt medical assistance to individuals in their “custody” under the Fourteenth Amendment, and what actions by law enforcement or their agents will constitute entrapment.
