Who should attend?

This training is geared towards law enforcement personnel who are responsible for responding to requests for law enforcement and personnel data.

Training overview

Students will emerge not only with a working knowledge of data practices laws and mechanics, but also with an understanding of how to research questions and issues as they arise.


  • What is the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act?
  • How is it applied to law enforcement and personnel data?
  • When and what data can be released and to whom
  • Administrative rules and how they apply
  • Standing court orders
  • Juvenile records


Former law enforcement officer turned attorney Bill Everett has been working with and teaching data practices dating back to the early 1990s. Bill brings a philosophy of, "if you aren't paying attention, you aren't learning" to the task of teaching this complicated (and sometimes dry) subject, and uses a series of stories, examples, and exercises to keep the course engaging and informative.
