MPD 2.0 brings increased focus on professional standards, accountability and service

Over the course of two days, nearly 1,000 Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) personnel attended one of two “all hands” meetings that outlined the department’s increased focus on training, professional standards and professional development.

All MPD sworn and civilian personnel were required to attend one of the two half-day sessions, which were held Feb. 5 and 6 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Never done before, last week’s meetings were a unique opportunity for all MPD personnel to hear the specifics – directly and collectively – about the department’s new level of accountability and professionalism.

Meeting topics and presenters:

Department employees left the course knowing the direction of the department, how the department will focus on core values and goals, and how they will be a part of moving forward.

The meetings were held at no additional cost to the department, fitting into the existing MPD training budget. Normal police patrols, 911 response and all other MPD functions continued normally during these sessions.
