In 2006 the Civilian Review Authority work group I helped establish issued several recommendations that were approved by City Council. One called for an external audit of the MPD Internal Affairs Unit. In 2008 the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) was awarded the contract to conduct the audit.
It is now complete and offers several recommendations that might improve our complaint investigation process and better inform and educate the community. The report will to come before Public Safety and regulatory Services committee on January 14.
