Wednesday, June 28, 2017

About 125 Minneapolis and University of Minnesota police officers on Tuesday received trauma-based training for working with sexual assault victims. Prosecutors from Ramsey and Hennepin counties also attended.

Matthew Clark, University of Minnesota police chief, said it was important for the university and city police to partner on student sexual assault cases. He said some campus officers had received this training and brought it to his attention, but this was the first time the department had offered it on a wider scale.
