The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is seeking comments on a draft of the Body Worn Camera Policy for Minneapolis Park Police.
The Park Police Department seeks to develop a body-worn camera (BWC) policy and contract with a vendor for hardware, data storage, and data management services. All sworn/licensed officers, assigned to patrol duties, are proposed to have body-worn cameras upon project completion. BWC program goals include: increased Park Police officer accountability, better documentation and evidence, and a reduction in conduct complaints and applications of force.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and Cedar Isles Dean Neighborhood Association (CIDNA) are hosting a community meeting to discuss changes to the 2016 MPRB Board-approved concept plan for South Beach at Cedar Lake.
The meeting will be held on Monday, April 17 6-8pm at Jones Harrison Residence, 3700 Cedar Lake Avenue in Minneapolis.
Since the concept plan was approved in 2016, CIDNA has put together a funding package to construct the improvements. An anonymous donor made funds available contingent upon the addition of a restroom to the plan. The April 17 community meeting will discuss possible locations for the restroom and its impact on the concept plan. The restroom building design will also be presented.
A public hearing to amend the concept plan is tentatively planned for May 3, 2017. Upon community and Board approval, construction of the improvements will begin in the fall of 2017. Improvements include a widened Grand Rounds multi-use trail, a seating plaza, retaining walls and beach access improvements. The improved beach will be open for use by the summer of 2018.
