Temporary Court Order
The Minnesota Department of Human Rights' investigation resulted in early and significant public safety changes.
On June 8, 2020, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights obtained a temporary court order from Hennepin County District Court that required the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Police Department to make immediate changes.
The court order required MPD to change how officers interact with community members and resulted in police accountability changes. The City and MPD incorporated all the changes identified in the court order into their policies, ordinances, and procedures.
