MPD150: Enough is Enough

“Enough Is Enough!” That is both the conclusion and the title of this report, a 150-year performance review of the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD).

“The report is the product of an investigation into the conduct of the department over the fifteen decades since its founding in 1867; a survey of its current role and impact especially on marginalized communities; and an exploration of viable alternatives to the policing model. The purpose of this report is to take the idea of police-free communities out of the realm of fantasy and place it firmly in the public agenda as a practical necessity.”
