In the News: Rachel Moran on the Search for New Police Chiefs in Minneapolis and St. Paul

School of Law Professor Rachel Moran spoke with WCCO-TV and KARE 11 about the candidates for police chief in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

From the WCCO story:


An expert in police accountability, Moran has been researching and studying the Newark Police Department for years. It's the city where O'Hara became a police officer in 2001. She said the prospective chief is a "fascinating" choice for the chief of Minneapolis.

She says, like Minneapolis, Newark's department was known for discrimination in traffic stops and using excessive force.

From KARE 11:

"It's really remarkable to have two police departments in somewhat similar cities right next to each other handling the process so differently."
