Minneapolis to announce broad new policy on sex assault investigations


Renee Jones Schneider – Star Tribune

Then-Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson's spoke about the task force's final recommendations on how to reform sex assault investigations during a news conference at the State Capitol in December.

Mayor Jacob Frey and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo are scheduled Wednesday to announce a set of broad reforms in how Minneapolis investigates sexual assault, following months of work designed to improve support for victims who report attacks to police.

The new standards are based on a model policy recently devised by the state's police oversight board, as well as a set of sweeping recommendations from a task force appointed last year by then-Attorney General Lori Swanson.
