How Do Self-Incrimination And The Lybarger Warning Affect An Interrogation Under The Pobar Act?

An interrogation of an officer can be administrative or criminal. The employer can order an officer to answer questions. POBAR requires that if an officer refuses to answer questions on the ground that the answers may be self­incriminating, or if it appears that the officer may be charged with a criminal offense, questioning must be preceded by a Lybarger warning.
