MOORHEAD — A presentation on police violence and compliance will be held at Minnesota State University Moorhead on Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Entitled "Police Violence and the Puzzle of Compliance," MSUM professor Joel Powell Dahlquist will speak on the issue, which will begin at 4:15 p.m. at Langseth Hall, 600 11th St. S., in room 118.

Dahlquist is the recipient of the 2022-2023 Dille Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award, which is one of the highest honors MSUM grants to faculty, according to a press release by MSUM.

The lecture will incorporate video recordings of situations involving law enforcement officers and citizens to illustrate how violence unfolds over time. Dahlquist will also focus on the disconnect between how police and public understand compliance, resistance and the use of force.

He and his student research assistants have used the traditional method of studying law enforcement, examining dozens of police reports from around the country, and scrutinized police body camera footage and citizen-shot videos that have gone viral on social media.

Dahlquist has coordinated police science education since arriving at MSUM, and has taught and mentored a number of active-duty law enforcement officers in the Fargo-Moorhead region and around the nation.

Dahlquist is also a former member of the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
