Police Chief and Gov. Disagree on New Policy

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau and Governor Mark Dayton disagree about a new policy Harteau announced yesterday apparently without the governor's OK. Harteau said Minneapolis police will no longer be investigating their own police misconduct claims, but will be handing any issues over to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. After the announcement, Dayton's press secretary said the governor found Harteau's comments inappropriate and, until everyone agrees on a new official policy, her statements hold no weight.
