Mpls. police chief wants to rebuild public trust

Off-duty officers disciplined after two seperate incidents

MINNEAPOLIS - Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said she'll work to rebuild the public's trust after a pair of alleged racial incidents involving off-duty officers.

Harteau said Friday she plans to begin talking with cultural and faith leaders.

Harteau also pledged to work with the city's civil right director and the new Police Conduct Oversight Commission to build stronger connections between police and the community.

The announcement comes after the Star Tribune reported that three white Minneapolis police officers were cited in Apple Valley last fall after they got into a fight while off duty with a group of black men.

Separately, two Minneapolis officers are suspended after reportedly scuffling with a group of black men while off-duty in Green Bay, Wis., in late June
