Police chiefs across Minnesota are speaking out against legislation regarding school resource officers.
Many are saying the new law regarding restraint and use of force is vague and unclear, and puts students, staff and officers in potentially dangerous situations.
"I think the biggest issue is clarity for law enforcement," Eagan Police Chief Roger New told WCCO.
The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association issued a statement saying the law is ambiguous and unclear, and does not allow SROs to intercede if a student is damaging school property or being disorderly.
Some agencies have pulled their SROs from local schools because of the new law.
Attorney General Keith Ellison says the new law does not limit the types of force that may be used to prevent bodily harm or death, but that force must be "reasonable" in those situations.
