Minnesota MUFON Mission Statement:

Minnesota MUFON Policy on Field Investigation:
Minnesota MUFON will conduct field investigation of UFO sightings
and related phenomena under the auspices of the parent organization:
Mututal UFO Network, Inc., headquartered in Bellvue, Colorado.
Minnesota MUFON may also affiliate with other UFO research or
investigative organizations as practical considerations warrant, and
may conduct investigations in association with those organizations.
The field investigator shall be subject to all ethical codes described in
the MUFON Field Investigators manual. The field investigator must
remember that he/she represents Minnesota MUFON to the UFO
witness or experiencer and shall conduct himself/herself accordingly.
Each investigator shall inform the field investigation coordinator when
he/she is available to take on a new investigation. When a qualified
MUFON member indicates to the Minnesota MUFON state director or
field investigation coordinator his/her availability as a field investigator,
he/she shall make available sufficient time to conduct a thorough, high
quality investigation. To avoid some investigators being overloaded, with
others having insufficient work, an investigator shall not undertake
additional investigations unless available free time permits. If time is not
available, he/she shall instead make the case available to other field
The purpose of a UFO field investigation shall be to determine, to as
accurate a degree as possible, the true nature of a UFO-related event or
report. The field investigator shall approach all UFO-related investigations
with an open mind. He/She shall apply objective reasoning and unbiased
analysis to the investigation.
The investigator shall not try to validate the witness' experience or treat
the effects (physical or mental) of an encounter on a witness. These
activities shall be reserved for a medical or mental health professional.
Where the field investigator does not have sufficient skills or expertise in
an area, he/she shall obtain the assistance of others more knowledgeable
in that area whenever possible.
