The Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) is the police department for the city of Minneapolis in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Formed in 1867, it is the second oldest police department in the state of Minnesota, after the Saint Paul Police Department (formed in 1854). A short-lived Board of Police Commissioners existed from 1887 to 1890. The modern department is organized into three bureaus all reporting to Chief of Police Tim Dolan. - Source: Wikipedia
