This is a “do not skip issue”. I support our Duluth Police Department and commend them for the work that they do. The creation of the Mental Health Unit in 2018 is a model that other departments around the country could look to utilize in this current political climate. We have high expectations of our officers, and with that, I am also in favor of providing additional training for our Peace Officers. These men and women are put in life-changing situations on a daily basis, and lives are on the line. After all, everybody deserves to feel safe.
