What's New?


UPDATE November 24, 2020

From the Executive Director:

In an effort to be more transparent and keep interested stakeholders informed, I am sending out highlights/updates on POST Board activities as regularly as I can.

 

Reporting database required by police reform legislation

 

I have been working closely with MNIT to meet the requirements of the reform legislation to create and maintain a database that will allow law enforcement agencies to report alleged peace officer misconduct data to POST​. This is a substantial undertaking with a tight timeline of making it available for data entry beginning July 1, 2021. To date:

·         A vendor has been identified and a proposal is being vetted against system and security requirements.

·         MNIT/POST are currently evaluating and interviewing contractors to serve as the business analyst/project manager for the data base project.

·         The goal is to have an executed service agreement in place by the first of the year in order to meet the July 2021 deadline.

 

IADLEST Audit

·         The full Board held a special meeting on November 19, 2020 to review the audit findings and engage in a Q&A with the auditors.

o   Here is the link to the recording of that meeting: https://youtu.be/JY_N7_Qodxk

 

·         Here is the link to the IADLEST final report: https://dps.mn.gov/entity/post/Documents/2020%20IADLEST%20Minnesota%20POST%20Audit%20-%20FINAL%20REPORT.pdf

 

·         Please keep in mind when reading the audit:

o   This audit and the accompanying recommendations are only one of several data points that have gathered as we look at POST Board business processes.

o   Recommendations are just that; recommendations. Any adoption of a recommendation or change in business process in this audit will be vetted and discussed by the Board, staff and stakeholders thoroughly before rule or statutory changes are proposed.

 

Filling of POST positions related to the police reform bill

 

·         The POST Board continues to wait for our vacancies, as authorized by the police reform bill, to be posted by Human Resources at the Department of Public Safety. The request to post these positions so candidates could apply was made on September 3rd.

·         These positions are:

§  Continuing Education Coordinator (Police reform bill - new training mandates)

§  Standards Coordinator (Police reform bill - new officer complaint reporting database)

 

Ensuring Police Excellence and Improving Community Relations Advisory Council

 

·         The Advisory Council held the latest meeting on November 17, 2020.
