Erickson Testified to the MN House of Representatives

Dr. Gina Erickson testified on behalf of the Minnesota Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Finance and Policy Committee for a bill that would expand the MN POST Board's database to include certain private police officer data (such as use of force or officer complaints). Dr. Erickson testified that we need need data collection of this nature to ensure evidence-based criminal justice practice and policies at all levels, and to centrally capture the kind of data necessary for early intervention to protect civilian lives.
