Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges says she’ll reappoint Police Chief Janeé Harteau to a second three-year term as chief.
The mayor said she’d been planning to make the announcement later this fall, but speculation that she would not reappoint the chief prompted her to speak out early.
The Chief’s vision for the department and the community is strong, and we share the goal of transforming public safety for the 21st century for the benefit of our City. I thank the Chief for her willingness to continue serving; her leadership is important in moving this work forward. I am grateful that she has accepted.
