Frey pledges 'care and compassion' for sex assault victims


Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey outlined a series of measures Tuesday to improve the police department’s response to sexual assaults, including the possibility of hiring a victim advocate.

Frey’s comments follow the publication of a Star Tribune investigation that documented chronic breakdowns in the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases, in Minneapolis and statewide. The yearlong project found hundreds of cases in which police across Minnesota failed to pursue basic investigative steps, including gathering physical evidence and proper interviewing of victims.
