Audio Report

 

MPD150 presents the audio version of their 2017 report, a 150-year performance review of the Minneapolis Police Department. The audio book is available for free download or can be streamed below, and the original text can be found here on the site, starting with the Overview. The official summary:

“Enough is Enough!” is both the conclusion and the title of this report, a 150-year performance review of the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD). The report is the product of an investigation into the conduct of the department over the fifteen decades since its founding in 1867. It includes a survey of its current role and impact, especially on marginalized communities, and an exploration of viable alternatives to the policing model. With this report, we hope to take the idea of police-free communities out of the realm of fantasy and place it firmly in the public agenda as a practical necessity.
