Rochester Police Launch Online Accountability Dashboard
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester Police Department has launched a new "digital dashboard" to provide the public with a tool for tracking a variety of policing statistics.
City officials say the creation of the website was requested during the Virtual Town Hall event that was held last month in the wake of the protests over the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police.
Chief Jim Franklin shares, “The Rochester Police Department continues to be responsive to members in our community and is committed to providing the highest level of public safety. Delivering this dashboard within 30 days is reflective of that ongoing commitment.”
The data that can be viewed on the digital dashboard includes the number of calls for service and enforcement action, use of force data, vehicle pursuits, along with training and policies.
