History of Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement in Minneapolis 

Almost 25 years have passed since the commencement of civilian oversight of the Minneapolis Police Department. Throughout that time, the organization of civilian review has changed dramatically, first under the Civilian Police Review Authority and then under the Office of Police Conduct Review. The information below is an outline of the various iterations of civilian oversight in Minneapolis, with supporting historical documents. For more information about civilian oversight over law enforcement, please see NACOLE
