Each attendee of the Advanced Civil Process will receive Rod's  updated manual. 

If you or someone from your agency has attended this course in the past, Rod is asking that you bring your old manual to the class to recycle. 

According to Rod, "the older manual may contain statutes that have been repealed or revised and case law that may no longer be relevant."

The Minnesota Sheriffs' Association wants you to have the most current information to do your job properly.
