Mind Opener: How are police trained and could it be better?

Date/Time

Apr 18, 2017
07:30 AM until 08:30 AM

Description

Minnesota was among the first states to set statewide selection and training standards for all peace officers. Most of those standards for basic peace officer training and selection are set out in Minnesota law. There is an effort at the legislature this year to mandate training in de-escalation techniques for every Minnesota officer. Is this enough? What other ideas should be tried to be sure we have the best peace officers possible?

Join Nate Gove, executive director of the MN Peace Officer Standards and Training Board (the state police licensing board) and former commander in the Golden Valley Police Department, as we explore this topic.
