The League of Minnesota Cities has a model resolution and supporting materials calling for action to address the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on public safety personnel in Minnesota. The League is supporting legislation that accomplishes PTSD prevention, treatment, and funding solutions advanced by member cities and adopted as a legislative policy priority by the League’s Board of Directors. The League encourages cities to adopt a resolution supporting current public safety duty disability legislation and voice their support to their legislators.
