Police Chief Reference Guide














The job of a Minnesota law enforcement executive has evolved over time and continues to become more complex each year. New laws, rules and requirements require our members to continually upgrade their knowledge and skills in order to be effective managers. The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association is constantly striving to keep their members informed.


The Boards of Directors, Regional Representatives and Committees are working hard to achieve the goals of our Association and Foundation. They strive to keep you

informed and equipped to serve the citizens in the most professional and effective manner possible. It is hoped that this manual will be one of many benefits of your

participation in the organizations that represent the finest law enforcement executives in the country.


The Association provides this material for general informational purposes. This reference guide is the compilation of many documents gathered into one manual for your easy reference. It is not intended to provide legal advice and should not be used as a substitute for competent legal guidance. Sample documents must be tailored to the needs of the individual city or county. All legal documents should be reviewed by an attorney before final action or implementation.
