  • For community policing to be successful, and crime reduction efforts to be effective, citizens must have trust in the police. The trust element has to be earned by actions, not just words. In evaluating evidence and making credibility determinations, the decision maker should consider all relevant factors. The exclusionary rule is a method of incentive to do so. The rule promotes accountability and education for police officers. This presentation will familiarize law enforcement officers with the Exclusionary Rule because the success or failure of criminal prosecutions sometimes depends on it.
