Minnesota Department of Human Rights files civil rights charge against Minneapolis Police Department, launches investigation

On June 2, 2020 the Minnesota Department of Human Rights launched an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department after filing a civil rights charge related to the death of George Floyd. This investigation into policies, procedures, and practices over the past 10 years will determine if the MPD has engaged in systemic discriminatory practices toward people of color and ensure any such practices are stopped.

The Department of Human Rights will seek agreement from City of Minneapolis leadership and the MPD to immediately implement interim measures in advance of long-term measures to address systemic discriminatory practices.

City leaders voiced strong support for the investigation today, acknowledging the City needs help from the State and other partners to advance necessary reforms.

Minnesotans with information that can further the investigation into the MPD should contact the Department of Human Rights at or 651-539-1100.
