Minnesota police board promises steps to improve sex assault investigations


August 16, 2018

The state’s top police regulator moved Wednesday to improve the handling of sexual assault cases in Minnesota, aiming to have a model policy for investigations and guidelines for officer training ready when the Legislature convenes in January.

The steps by the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) are the most far-reaching of various changes proposed in the wake of a Star Tribune series that has documented widespread failings in the way Minnesota law enforcement agencies investigate rapes and sexual assaults. The board licenses more than 12,000 peace officers across the state.
