Minneapolis Police to Improve Safety of Transport Vans

May 20, 2015

The City of Minneapolis Police Department is pulling its transport trucks and vans — used to transport detained or intoxicated people — off the streets for safety improvements. Fleet staff will evaluate how passengers are restrained inside the vehicles and install cameras in all the vehicles, reported.  

A police spokesperson said the decision was not prompted by the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, but was made before the incident.
