The Minnesota Sheriff's Association has established a scholarship fund for awarding up to 15 $600 scholarships for law enforcement training for this year.

These scholarships are due to the coordinated efforts of all 87 sheriffs in Minnesota, a news release stated.

The members of the MSA understand the financial needs of students attending the Peace Officer Skills Course, or one of the two- or four-year law enforcement degree colleges across the state, the release stated.

"The board of directors feel peace officers in our democratic society have complex duties to perform," Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen stated in a news release.

The scholarship committee, in making its selection of awards, intends on achieving representation from all geographical areas of the state. Scholarship awards will be announced by Dec. 30.
