Law Officer Provides Free Training to the Minneapolis Police Department
Law Officer, an industry leader in law enforcement training and news is providing free training to the members of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis which includes members of the Minneapolis Police Department.
The decision to provide the training, consisting of a wide variety of law enforcement topics including officer survival, leadership, fitness, de-escalation and emergency vehicle operations, came following the decision by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey to ban all forms of ‘Warrior’ training for Minneapolis officers both on duty and during their personal time.
Law Officer, in an exclusive partnership with the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, will provide their online training program to every member of the Minneapolis Police Department for free and that offer will continue for the remainder of Mayor Frey’s term. The training valued at $55,000 each year will provide each Minneapolis police officer relevant training each day of the week via an exclusive phone application and private website.
Director of Training for Law Officer, Travis Yates says that “it is both an honor and privilege to provide the heroes of the Minneapolis Police Department daily training that can ensure they will return home each day to their family regardless of the dangers that they may face and the ignorance of some politicians.”
Lt. Bob Kroll, the president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, thanked Law Officer for providing the training and for defying the demands of Mayor Frey.
“Law Officer brings our officers state of the art warrior training that we are proud to embrace and while it seems that the lives of our officers are not important to politicians, they certainly are by Law Officer and we are grateful for this partnership,” Kroll Said.
