Amending Chapter 102 of the Administrative Code to implement certain recommendations of the audit of the Police Civilian Internal Affairs Review Commission.


Section 1

Section 102.01 of the Saint Paul Administrative code is hereby amended to read as follows:

Sec. 102.01. - Purpose and scope of commission review.
(a) In order to assure the public that police services are delivered in a lawful and nondiscriminatory manner, and build upon the 2001 agreement entered into between the City and the NAACP, the public should be accorded participatory oversight of the police and their interaction with the citizenry. To this end, the mayor and council wish to structure citizen involvement as set forth in this chapter so that in the event complaints are received regarding police activities such complaints are reviewed and processed with the participation of citizen representatives. Citizen review, in conjunction with the police, of complaints against officers will assure that complaints are dealt with fairly and with due regard for officers and citizens equally.

(b) The commission shall review all complaint investigations concerning members of the police department who are certified by the Minnesota Board of Peace Officers Standards and Training, completed by the internal affairs unit of the police department and subsequent investigations thereof related to alleged acts of excessive force, inappropriate use of firearms, discrimination, as defined in Chapter 183.02 of this Code, racial profiling, poor public relations and such other complaints as may be referred to it by the mayor, and/or the chief of police, or the director of the Department of Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity. The commission shall also collect and review summary data on complaints received and report to the mayor and council any patterns which may merit further examination.
