BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: Section 1. [626.77] [PEACE OFFICERS FROM ADJOINING STATES.] Subdivision 1. [ARREST AUTHORITY.] A peace officer of a state adjoining Minnesota has the same authority to arrest and hold an individual in custody as has any peace officer of this state if all of the following circumstances are present: (1) the officer enters this state while on duty and authorized by a request for assistance by a peace officer of this state; (2) while in this state, the officer acts under the direction of the peace officer to whom the officer is rendering assistance; (3) while in this state, the officer acts in accordance with the rules and regulations of the officer's own appointive or elective authority; and (4) upon effecting an arrest, the officer surrenders custody of the arrested individual to a peace officer of this state without unnecessary delay. Subd. 2. [TORT LIABILITY; INDEMNIFICATION.] A peace officer from an adjoining state who responds to a request for assistance and who acts in accordance with subdivision 1 is serving in the regular line of duty as fully as though the service was within the officer's jurisdiction. For the purposes of section 3.736 and chapter 466, the officer is deemed to be an employee of the elective or appointive agency of the peace officer requesting assistance.
