On Thursday, July 23, 2020, Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Attorney Michael Colacci presented to a group of law enforcement officers who work for various municipalities and county offices across New Jersey. The seminar was held at Morris County Park Police Department in Morristown and was titled “Investigating Police Misconduct.”
Michael was a presenter in the afternoon portion of the program, where he covered relevant topics such as Brady / Giglio disclosures, which apply to exculpatory and impeachment evidence in criminal cases, and the recent Attorney General Directive 2019-06, which was issued on December 4, 2019.
As of March 1, 2020, each New Jersey County Prosecutor’s Office is now mandated to include policies related to Brady / Giglio disclosures in order to comply with AG Directive 2019-06. The crux of Michael’s presentation was ensuring that local police officers know what they are required to disclose to their respective county prosecutors under the newly mandated policies.
