CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - The union that represents Chaska police officers has filed a grievance on behalf of a member accused of racial and ethnic profiling.

The Chaska Police Department says Officer Joshua Lawrenz has been terminated following an “extensive investigation.”

The union, Law Enforcement Labor Services, says there’s no just cause for termination. It says the officer has not been previously disciplined.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1GijgNN ) says Lawrenz has been on paid administrative leave since September after members of the city’s Latino community met with the police chief to complain about profiling.
