(Andover, MN) — Law enforcement leaders are again asking for a special session of the legislature to clarify a law affecting the use of school resource officers in Minnesota. Officers representing several state law enforcement groups gathered at the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office yesterday to call for the special session. A state law passed earlier this year restricted the use of certain types of physical holds on students, including those that make it hard to breathe or communicate. More than two dozen agencies have pulled resource officers from Minnesota schools over fears their officers could be criminally charged or sued if they use certain types of force on students. Governor Walz has said that he doesn’t plan to call a special session to address the law.
