M.S.A. § 626.8471 MINNESOTA STATUTES ANNOTATED CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (CH. 625-634) CHAPTER 626. PEACE OFFICERS; AUTHORITY; TRAINING; REPORTING PEACE OFFICERS 626.8471. Avoiding racial profiling; policies and learning objectives required
Subdivision 1. Purpose. The legislature finds that the reality or public perception of racial profiling alienates people from police, hinders community policing efforts, and causes law enforcement to lose credibility and trust among the people law enforcement is sworn to protect and serve. No stop initiated by a peace officer should be made without a legitimate reason; race, ethnicity, or national origin alone should never provide a sufficient reason. Law enforcement policies and training programs must emphasize the need to respect the balance between the rights of all persons to be free from unreasonable governmental intrusions and law enforcement's need to enforce the law.
Subd. 2. Definition. "Racial profiling" means any action initiated by law enforcement that relies upon the race, ethnicity, or national origin of an individual rather than:
(1) the behavior of that individual; or
(2) information that leads law enforcement to a particular individual who has been identified as being engaged in or having been engaged in criminal activity.
Racial profiling includes use of racial or ethnic stereotypes as factors in selecting whom to stop and search. Racial profiling does not include law enforcement's use of race or ethnicity to determine whether a person matches a specific description of a particular subject.
Subd. 3. Statewide model policy. (a) The Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training shall consult with the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association, the Minnesota Sheriffs Association, the Racial Profiling Advisory Committee, and the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association in developing an antiracial profiling model policy governing the conduct of peace officers engaged in stops of citizens. This policy shall define racial profiling and identify conduct that violates the law. The policy must also include a duty to give the officer's name or badge number and identify the officer's department during routine traffic stops.
(b) The board shall adopt a model policy and distribute the model policy to all chief law enforcement officers by August 1, 2001.
Subd. 4. Agency policies required. (a) By November 1, 2001, the chief law enforcement officer of every state and local law enforcement agency must establish and enforce a written antiracial profiling policy governing the conduct of peace officers engaged in stops of citizens. The chief law enforcement officer shall ensure that each peace officer receives a copy of the agency's antiracial profiling policy. The chief law enforcement officer also must ensure that each peace officer is aware of the policy's purpose and the conduct prohibited by it.
(b) The policy must, at a minimum, comply with the requirements of the model policy adopted by the board under subdivision 3.
(c) Every state and local law enforcement agency must certify to the board that it has adopted a written policy in compliance with the board's model policy.
(d) The board shall assist the chief law enforcement officer of each state and local law enforcement agency in developing and implementing antiracial profiling policies under this subdivision.
Subd. 5. Preservice training learning objectives; requirements. (a) By August 1, 2001, the board shall prepare learning objectives for preservice training to instruct peace officers in avoiding racial profiling when making stops of citizens. These learning objectives shall be included in the required curriculum of professional peace officer education programs.
(b) An individual is not eligible to take the peace officer licensing examination or the part-time peace officer licensing examination on or after June 1, 2002, unless:
(1) the individual has received the training described in paragraph (a); and
(2) the individual has completed a psychological evaluation demonstrating that the individual is not likely to engage in racial profiling.
Subd. 6. In-service training learning objectives. By August 1, 2001, the board shall prepare learning objectives for in-service training to instruct peace officers in avoiding racial profiling when making stops of citizens. The board shall evaluate and monitor in-service training courses to ensure they satisfy the learning objectives.
Subd. 7. Chief law enforcement officers and supervisors; requirements. The executive director of the Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training shall prepare training materials to provide chief law enforcement officers and other peace officers with supervisory authority with information on how to detect and respond to racial profiling by peace officers under their command. The training materials must address both the agency's antiracial profiling policy and procedural components aimed at eliminating racial profiling in stops of citizens. The materials must include information on federal and state constitutional and statutory laws prohibiting discrimination by law enforcement. The procedural information must describe conduct that is unlawful or inappropriate and present guidelines for reinforcing techniques that are lawful and appropriate. The procedural information shall discuss appropriate search and seizure and interviewing techniques.
Subd. 8. POST board; compliance reviews authorized. The board has authority to inspect state and local agency policies to ensure compliance with subdivision 4. The board may conduct this inspection based upon a complaint it receives about a particular agency or through a random selection process.
M.S.A. § 626.9517 MINNESOTA STATUTES ANNOTATED CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (CH. 625-634) CHAPTER 626. PEACE OFFICERS; AUTHORITY; TRAINING; REPORTING RACIAL PROFILING 626.9517. Grant program for installation of video cameras in police vehicles
Subdivision 1. Grants; cameras described. The commissioner of public safety shall make grants to law enforcement agencies participating in the racial profiling study described in section 626.951 for the purchase, installation, and maintenance of video cameras on police vehicles designed to record traffic stops. A video camera installed pursuant to a grant under this section must:
(1) be automatically activated during every traffic stop;
(2) contain an audio feature; and
(3) be designed and installed so as to record the stop in its entirety.
Cameras may not be equipped with manual shutoff switches and must be activated for the entirety of a traffic stop.
Subd. 2. Storage of video. Notwithstanding section 138.163 or 138.17, chief law enforcement officers of agencies receiving grants under this section for video cameras in police vehicles shall ensure that the videotape or disk from the camera be stored for a minimum of 60 days after use. If the chief law enforcement officer has not been instructed by the board or the attorney general to maintain the tape or disk beyond that period, the chief law enforcement officer may reuse it. Tapes and disks must be stored and maintained under this subdivision in an accessible manner. The tapes and disks must be clearly labeled and ordered.
Subd. 3. Availability of videotape. A chief law enforcement officer shall provide a copy of a videotape or disk that recorded a traffic stop to the driver of the stopped vehicle upon the driver's request and at the driver's expense if the tape or disk has not yet been reused.
MINNESOTA STATUTES ANNOTATED CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (CH. 625-634) CHAPTER 626. PEACE OFFICERS; AUTHORITY; TRAINING; REPORTING RACIAL PROFILING 626.9514. Toll-free telephone number
The attorney general shall operate and maintain a toll-free telephone number for complaints dealing with racial profiling. The attorney general must act as a clearinghouse for racial profiling complaints and must forward complaints to the Peace Officer Standards and Training Board.
