First ideas emerge on new sexual assault training for Minnesota officers


December 13, 2018

A law enforcement work group has recommended several measures to improve police training on sexual assaults in Minnesota, including specialized courses for patrol officers and investigators as well as their supervisors. Police leaders and administrators, the group said, need to understand why high-quality sexual assault investigations "should be prioritized."

The recommendations are the first to emerge from three groups working to improve law enforcement's response to sexual assaults and prepare recommendations for the 2019 Legislature. They were presented Wednesday to the training committee of the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), which licenses and oversees more than 12,000 sworn peace officers in the state.
