2012-Present: Office of Police Conduct Review (OPCR) 


In response to the need to streamline the common work of the MDCR and MPD, the need for transparency, and the need for a more effective oversight of the investigative processes a new oversight process was proposed by the MDCR, MPD and City Attorney Leadership. The MDCR and the IAU would work together under the new umbrella of the Office of Police Conduct Review (OPCR).

After several public hearings and significant debate, the City Council approved the new structure. In the first year of operation, the OPCR set up its complaint process, the review panel and planned for the Commission.

The OPCR, with the assistance of review panels, assesses and investigates individual complaints in accordance with the process outlined in the ordinance. In addition to the OPCR, the new law provides for a Police Conduct Oversight Commission. The Commission is charged with auditing case summaries, reviewing policies and procedures, facilitating officer training, and performing other duties.
