MPD150 Performance Review: Enough is Enough

MPD150 is an independent community-based initiative to evaluate the first 150 years of the Minneapolis Police Department. Through historical investigation, interviews and research into viable alternatives we have produced a performance review that examines the department's past – its track record since 1867 including the failure of reform efforts; its present – its current practices and impact on community life; and the future – the necessity of dismantling its overbearing political and paramilitary power and the transfer of its resources into alternative models of community safety, well-being and resilience.
