MPD chief’s travels move dollars, critics
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau is a sought after guest during law coercion conferences and conventions around a country, though her complicated transport report has some critics seeking if she’s roving too most and blank critical matters during home.
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) – Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau is a sought after guest during law coercion conferences and conventions around a country, though her complicated transport report has some critics seeking if she’s roving too most and blank critical matters during home.
Chief Harteau agrees she’s in direct and talks to groups about a accumulation of issues including all from drugs and guns, to terrorism and military training. She told a Fox 9 Investigators in a one-on-one talk that transport is a necessity.
“Law coercion as a contention has not been looked during and reviewed in a prolonged time that is since we hear about 21st Century policing,” Harteau said. “What worked 20, 30, 40 years ago and what we demeanour during in a form of military officer we wish is dramatically different.”
The Fox 9 Investigators performed Harteau’s transport losses from a city. In her scarcely 3 years as chief, she has taken 31 trips for a sum of 90 days on a highway during a sum cost to taxpayers of $23,782.
For comparison, St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith has been on 13 trips, 29 days on a highway during a cost of $7,588. Chief Smith declined a ask for an interview.
Minneapolis’ initial womanlike Chief pronounced it’s critical for her to have a chair during a table, nationally. According to a MPD, her trips have resulted in extend dollars of: $600,000 for physique cameras, $600,000 to revoke aroused crime in Cedar-Riverside and $221,000 to investigate military misconduct.
“I’m a on-going personality in a on-going department, operative for a on-going Mayor,” pronounced Harteau.
At city hall, and with a military union, a Chief’s transport has lifted eyebrows, with some wondering if she was indeed out pursuit hunting.
Four of a out-of-state conferences attended by Harteau were also attended alone by Harteau’s girlfriend, Brenda Leffler, a Lieutenant Colonel with a Colorado State Patrol. The dual announced their attribute a year ago, a few months after Harteau’s subdivision from her wife, a Minneapolis military sergeant.
Harteau had a 5th outing to Denver dual years ago to debate a Colorado State Patrol and to watch videos prepared by a counter-terrorism center. Harteau connected that outing to a Homeland Security counterterrorism extend for $100,000. When asked if she went on those trips to see her girlfriend, Harteau responded: “Again, my decisions to transport are what it brings to a city, a military department, and my profession, period.”
Harteau is featured prominently in a silken leaflet from a MPD, as “the people’s Chief,” and her “chats with a Chief.”
Critics, like NAACP leader, Nekima Levy-Pounds pronounced a black lives matter function of a fourth patrol shows Hateau talks a improved diversion on a road, than she delivers here during home.
“We are not out of a woods, yet. If they do not power in a Minneapolis Police Department a village will have a response, either people like it or not,” pronounced Levy-Pounds.
When asked if some people trust those relations on a belligerent have suffered since of her transport schedule, Harteau said: “Well, I’d adore to have a review with a people who trust that. Me, being left nationally has positively helped and helped build initiatives here. There were people here protesting were from elsewhere. This is all about building relations and assisting a Minneapolis Police Department.”
