Critical Issues Forum 2019

How should police respond to crisis calls where a person is threatening to harm themselves or commit suicide?  The MCPA’s Critical Issues Forum will explore this issue Wednesday December 11th from both a legal and ethical perspective as well as discuss and debate possible solutions.  Event registration is free.

The Issue
Law enforcement agencies in Minnesota and across the country are rethinking their approach. Some local agencies have stopped responding because of the potential dangers to both officers and the person attempting to end his or her life.  These calls also present a financial liability, particularly if the situation turns violent.   

Chiefs' Survey

As we have with past forums, we want to understand our members' perspectives on this issue as we prepare the program.  Please complete this short Chiefs' Survey available through this link.  We will share results at the forum and in member newsletters.
