Chaplains

Chaplains

The Minneapolis Police Department announced the details on its new “Community Chaplain Program” on September 18th, 2014. It is a continuation of the MPD 2.0 initiative and will help the Department improve its connections with the diverse communities it serves. The 13 member team is made up of a cross-section of religious and cultural leaders who will greatly enhance relationships between residents and the city’s 5 police precincts. Chaplains attend community meetings, participate in “ride-alongs” with Officers in their dedicated precincts and respond to critical incident scenes.

 

CHIEF’S CITIZEN ADVISORY COUNCIL

Citizen Advisory Council

The Chief’s Citizens Advisory Council acts as a resource for the Chief, helping with the formation of strategies, development of community policing concepts, and improving public awareness about MPD initiatives. The committee provides a forum for discussions and provides the Chief with a broad spectrum of viewpoints represented by committee members. The invaluable input helps the MPD improve community relations and community engagement.

CHIEF’S YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL (Updates Coming Soon)

The Chief’s Youth Advisory Council is a group of young adults who work with the Chief on defining issues and improving youth input on police-community relations. The young men and women selected are leaders in their schools and neighborhoods who now have the opportunity to have their voices heard, directly from the Chief of Police. This group works in conjunction with the MPD’s partners at YouthLink, the Downtown Improvement District, the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board, and Pillsbury United Communities.
