Welcome to the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all May and June MSA in person trainings and conferences have been postponed.

If you have already registered for a training or conference, your registration will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date.

              NEW! In June we will start offering Live Online Trainings.

Please click the MSA Events tab above to see the current list of dates, which will be updated daily as we receive instructor confirmations of these updated dates.



This past year, we worked with the National Command and Staff College to create an Implicit Bias course that would fulfill the Minnesota POST mandates.

There are two courses available:  Implicit Bias (3 hours) and Implicit Bias for Corrections (2 hours)

The three main objectives of this course are to: 

Demonstrate an understanding of race relations and their impact on policing practices

Demonstrate an understanding of implicit and explicit bias

Demonstrate an understanding of impartial policing  

Click Here for the full course objectives.

Also available on MNLET are the following courses:  Cultural Diversity (an ICLD course) and Cultural Diversity and Multi-Cultural Communications in a Corrections Setting (MSA developed course). These courses are available on MNLET with no additional charge to sheriff’s staff. The site is:  www.mnlet.org.

Please contact Ann Jarrett at ajarrett@mnsheriffs.org with questions.


The Blue Line Trauma Response class has been rescheduled to September 22, 2020 in St. Paul.

We have notified current registrants of this via email.
