Updated RRA Policy

After months of reviewing policies from across the country, examining its own practices and listening to feedback at three public forums and more than a dozen community meetings, the Saint Paul Police Department has published an updated version of its use of force policy.

The department received more than 100 submissions from community members, all of which were individually reviewed by Axtell - and many of which were incorporated into the updated policy.

You may view the policy and see what community feedback was included here.
