Civil Rights Department to conduct special review of MPD’s no-knock warrant policy

In the wake of the Feb. 2 fatal police shooting of Amir Locke, the Office of Police Conduct Review (OPCR), a division of the City’s Civil Rights Department, will conduct a special review of Minneapolis Police Department’s no-knock warrant policy.

The review will focus on identifying and recommending specific changes and improvements to department policy and procedures.


According to officials, as an administrative body, the office does not have the authority to conduct a criminal investigation.

OPCR said they will conduct a detailed and comprehensive review of the Minneapolis Police Department’s no-knock warrant policy.

OPCR is also tasked with investigating complaints of officer misconduct, which is a separate process from this special review and takes place independently.

To ensure the integrity of the review and any related investigations, information will not be shared until it is legally permitted.
