Basic Criminal Law and Procedure

Corrections and law enforcement staff are an essential element of an effective criminal justice system.  This “Basic Criminal Law and Procedure” course will address basic concepts and definitions in the criminal law as well as elements of the constitution and rules of procedures.

This two-hour course will address constitutional elements, including the United States and the Minnesota Constitution.  Procedural requirements and the Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure as well as state statutes will be covered.  We will look at the workflow of a case and how it works within the criminal justice system, including what a 36-Hour Rule and a 48-Hour Rule mean. Mental Illness and the criminal court system will be addressed as well as victim rights.

While this course is applicable to anyone working in the law enforcement field, it will address basic concepts and rules of procedures that most directly impact the duties of custody and other jail staff.
