Teamsters Local 320 and the Minnesota Teamsters Law Enforcement League (MNTLEL) welcome the City of Ada Police Department to the Teamster family. The two Police Officers from Ada come to us from the so-called MNPEA organization. Teamsters Local 320 and MNTLEL are excited to represent Ada PD and finally get them their contract.
On Monday, February 10th MNTLEL held its annual law enforcement training in Walker, MN. The day-long course was titled “Surviving the Attack and Surviving the Aftermath.” Tom Schlieman, St. Cloud Police Department, facilitated the training and provided excellent examples and course material for Teamster Law Enforcement Officers, LEOs. Tom’s current assignment at the St. Cloud PD is in the special units working with the Housing Redevelopment Authority investigating civil and criminal cases in low income crime free housing.
Later in the day investigators from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) discussed the typical protocol for LEOs after a critical incident. At the end of the day, Local 320 General Counsel Paula Johnston discussed how Teamsters Local 320 supports its LEOs after a critical incident and how they can utilize the MNTLEL Critical Incident Hotline 1-800-206-1491.
Neb. CO declared brain dead after attack. Please keep CO Amanda Baker’s loved ones and co-workers in your thoughts and prayers!
A tribute to the men and women of Law Enforcement who made the ultimate sacrifice in 2013. May their families be comforted by all.
