Community weighs in on Harteau’s reappointment


Many community leaders had high praise for Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau during a public hearing Wednesday on her reappointment for another three-year term.

The City Council’s Public Safety & Regulatory Services Committee took public comments on her reappointment and will continue the public hearing Feb. 10 at the Council’s Committee of the Whole meeting.

The chief’s reappointment comes as the MPD is under increased scrutiny in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Jamar Clark on Nov. 15 and the 18-day occupation of the 4th Precinct that followed.
