Law Enforcement Counsel

Proudly serving those who serve us.

Jones Mayer has a proud tradition of providing highly experienced legal counsel to law enforcement agencies across the state of California. Working through the sheriff or the chief of police, we provide ongoing advice, guidance, and representation. Managers and supervisors at today’s law enforcement agencies confront a wide range of legal issues. We support their efforts to preserve agency resources, protect against risk, maintain compliance, and advance public safety. Our work on behalf of law enforcement agencies includes:

  • Careful review and analysis of relevant court decisions, legislation, and other law enforcement updates.
  • Advice on reducing the risk of litigation.
  • Defense in lawsuits, including civil rights litigation.
  • Regular advisement and training for members of the agency to keep them up to speed on changes in the law.

We are honored to serve as the general legal counsel to several leading law enforcement organizations, including the California State Sheriffs’ Association (CSSA), the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA), California Peace Officers’ Association (CPOA), and the Southeast Area Social Services Funding Authority (SASSFA).
