Congressman Tom Emmer’s Cosponsored Abby Honold Act Signed Into Law

(KNSI) — A bill inspired by a former University of Minnesota student and cosponsored by a central Minnesota congressman was signed into federal law this week. The Abby Honold Act creates a two-year test program for training police in trauma-informed investigations into sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice is now required to award grants to law enforcement agencies and provide trauma-informed training on investigative techniques to improve how law enforcement officials communicate with victims to avoid retraumatization. The law was born out of Honold’s seriously negative dealings with a Minneapolis Police Department investigator after she was violently raped by a fellow student in 2014.
