Requesting Police Data
ANNOUNCEMENT: New MPD Records System Coming Soon
In June 2018, the Minneapolis Police Department will begin using a new Records Management System for storing and retrieving data related to MPD cases. The department asks for and appreciates patience from those requesting police data while the department learns to work with this new resource, as delays in responding to and fulfilling requests are expected during the implementation of the new system.
More information will be made available closer to the actual implementation date.
