Employees invited to reception for Police Chief Tim Dolan

Employees are invited to a reception honoring Police Chief Tim Dolan, who will be leaving City service in November after serving the Minneapolis Police Department for 29 years. The reception will be held Monday, Oct. 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Room 132, City Hall.

Earlier this year, Dolan announced his decision not to seek a third term as police chief. Dolan began his law enforcement career as a Hennepin County Sheriff’s Deputy in 1978. He came to the Minneapolis Police Department in 1983 and has served as chief since 2006.

Before becoming chief, Dolan served in numerous command and leadership capacities in nearly every part of the city, including deputy chief, inspector and commander of the 4th Precinct in North Minneapolis, commander of narcotics, commander of emergency response and director of training.

Mayor R.T. Rybak has nominated Assistant Chief Janeé Harteau as Minneapolis’ next chief of police. If the Council confirms Harteau’s nomination, she would become the first woman to lead the Minneapolis Police Department, and one of only two women serving as police chief in America’s large cities.

Harteau joined the Minneapolis Police force as an officer in 1987. She has worked on the street in north, south and downtown Minneapolis, and has served in the narcotics, organized crime and license investigation units, among others.
