Listening Sessions Find Shared Values Between Communities, DPS Law Enforcement

​The Minnesota Department of Public Safety found shared values between communities and law enforcement following listening session across Minnesota. The seven community listening sessions took place last year in Rochester, Burnsville, Maple Grove, St. Cloud, Duluth, Minneapolis and Thief River Falls. The sessions found that community members believe that if law enforcement officers are selected based on specific values and then trained in the skills necessary to be highly proficient in their duties, then trust in officers and DPS will increase.
