Alternate Title: Civil Rights and Policing Practices in Minnesota: A Report of the Minnesota Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

"The Minnesota Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights submits this report detailing civil rights concerns associated with police practices in Minnesota. The Committee submits this report as part of its responsibility to study and report on civil rights issues in the state of Minnesota. The contents of this report are primarily based on testimony the Committee heard during hearings on March 21, 2017 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This report documents civil rights concerns raised by panelists with respect to police practices throughout the state of Minnesota and discusses possible strategies for implementing the recommendations put forth by The Task Force on 21st Century Policing (Task Force). Based on the findings of this report, the Committee offers to the Commission recommendations for addressing this issue of national importance. The Committee recognizes that the Commission has previously issued important studies about policing and civil rights nationwide and hopes that the information presented here aids the Commission in its continued work on this topic."
