Minneapolis transforms city policing

Client(s) City of Minneapolis

On March 31, 2023, the city of Minneapolis and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR) filed a 144 page settlement agreement in state court that will fundamentally change the way Minneapolis police engage with its citizens. Jones Day advised the mayor and city attorney to negotiate this groundbreaking settlement agreement that is enforceable by court order.

Under the terms of the agreement, the city will be under court-ordered supervision for at least five years. The agreement requires increased training; accountability; changes in use of force and stop, search and frisk policies; and improvements in data collection and technology.
