City Leaders, Activists Look To Chief's Action On MPD MisconductOn Saturday, the Minneapolis Police Officers Federation issued a statement about two cases involving off-duty officers accused of racial bias. The Federation says it concurs with Chief Janee Harteau's statement that "racism and discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated within the MPD." They said they want exactly what Chief Harteau wants: the community's trust that officers will impartially and objectively protect the public. The union wants a seat at the table when the powers that be meet to discuss how to deal with these accusations of misconduct.
