Police Conduct Oversight Commission
The Commission assures that police services are delivered in a lawful and nondiscriminatory manner and provides the public with meaningful participatory oversight of police policy and procedure. Commission members have a variety of responsibilities including shaping police policy, auditing cases, engaging the community in discussions of police procedure, and facilitating cultural awareness trainings for the Minneapolis Police Department.
The Police Conduct Oversight Commission (PCOC) adopted their strategic plan at the July 2014 regular meeting, outlining achievable goals for the next 24 months. In developing the plan, commissioners focused on three core concepts: mindfulness, interconnectedness, and transparency. The plan reflects the Commission’s ongoing pledge to foster an environment where stakeholders voice concerns and seek credible feedback while building relationships with the diverse and vibrant communities of the City of Minneapolis.
