Statement from Chief Arradondo Reference the Upcoming BulletProof Training

“After careful consideration, the Minneapolis Police Department has decided it will not be sending any officers to this week’s BulletProof training. While we hold the safety of our community members and our officers in the highest regard, our policing model is built on a community of trust. We do not want to attend any training that could, in any way, shake the foundation of trust. Our original intention was to send training officers to assess what is currently being taught to law enforcement officers and determine if those methods would be in line with our core values of building trust, accountability and delivering professional service.”

– Medaria Arradondo, Chief of Police
