Police Chief Janeé Harteau recently honored several Police Department employees for their exceptional service. Included in these honors was the OPCR’s very own Ryan Patrick. Three years ago, Chief Harteau asked the Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs to complete an independent and thorough review of the Minneapolis Police Department’s performance management system. The task was to review six years of data in an effort to improve MPD’s practices and policies. Ryan contributed countless hours to the project, going through Civilian Review Authority data, retrieving Office of Police Conduct Review data, producing charts, writing reports and conducting conference calls. The Department is extremely proud of Ryan’s contributions and recognition. His receipt of the Chief’s Award of Merit is much deserved! Congratulations!
