Use of Force Part II: Rules of Engagement

POST APPROVED: 4 Hours Conflict Management & 4 Hours Use of Force

Rules of engagement refer to the orders issued by a competent authority that delineate when, where, how, and against whom opposing force may be used, and the implications for what actions officers may take their own authority and what directives may be issued by State-Federal Statutes, Policy-Procedure and Command staff directives.

This new two-part course will focus on an officer’s personal and professional worldview by identifying how to control, de-escalate and manage themselves and others. They will examine use of force as it relates to the policies and procedures regarding Duty to Intercede, Duty to Render Aid, and De-escalation.

At the center of the discussion will be Minnesota Statute § 609.066, Authorized Use of Deadly Force By Peace Officers, including the recent amendment to the four-decade statute placing new requirements on peace officers.

  • What are the new state and federal requirements?
  • How has case-law evolved regarding authorized use of deadly force in Minnesota?
  • As a peace officer, what expectations exist under these new laws?

This class will be engaging and allow for officer’s to participate in reality-based hypotheticals to better inform them of the law and polices while allowing each to articulate why force was or was not justified.
