THE MCPA 2022 TRAINING TOUR - USE OF FORCE IN MINNESOTA: THE EVOLUTION OF THE LEGAL STANDARD AND OTHER KEY ISSUES IMPACTING POLICING

These are challenging times in law enforcement as the policies and practices of the policing profession are under intense and immense scrutiny from a myriad of sources.
