Chief Harteau and the MPD want to thank more than 100 teens who joined us for the 1st Annual Chief’s Youth Summit. The idea was to give our youth a voice in the public safety conversation; we had some very candid conversations about gun violence, body cameras, community policing and responsible social media use. Some teens even conducted interactive traffic stops as officers. We’ll post an inside look at the event on Friday. For now, we have to thank and acknowledge our generous sponsors: 3M, Target, Minneapolis Foundation, CenterPoint Energy and Standard Heating and Air Conditioning.
