Minneapolis Police Release Results of Investigation into 2014 Summer Arrest

Minneapolis, MN (September 9, 2015) Today, the Minneapolis Police Department releases an independent investigation into an arrest made by MPD Officers on the 3100 block of Chicago Avenue South on July 25th, 2014. The review found “no violation of law or MPD policy arising from the officers’ conduct during the incident.” You will find a link to the document at the bottom of this post.

Based on the results of the investigation, the Police Conduct Review Panel (comprised of 2 MPD Lieutenants and 2 civilians) unanimously recommended, and the Office of the Chief of Police agreed, that the officers’ conduct during the incident did not violate MPD policy. After reviewing the independent investigation and the panel’s recommendations the Chief has exonerated the officers of wrongdoing.

We appreciate the public’s patience through the investigative process. The independent investigation report is ready for release now that the officers involved have signed consent forms authorizing the release of personnel data. The report has been redacted to comply with the requirements of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act.
