MPD Chief Arradondo says he won’t seek 3rd term

(KSTP) – Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced Monday that he won’t seek a third term as police chief.

"After 32 years of service, I believe that now is the right time to allow for new leadership, new perspective, new focus and new hope to lead the department forward in collaboration with our communities," Arradondo said.

He will retire next month to allow for a smooth transition to the new leadership, he added.

Arradondo became the city’s police chief after Janee Harteau resigned in 2017. He is the first Black person to serve as chief of the Minneapolis Police Department.
