MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minneapolis has sworn in Janee Harteau as the city's new police chief.
Harteau, a Duluth native, was sworn in as Minneapolis' 52nd police chief at a ceremony Tuesday at City Hall. She is the first female and first openly gay police chief in Minneapolis history.
Harteau's 13-year-old daughter stood next to her during the ceremony and pinned Harteau with the chief's badge. Also close by was Harteau's longtime partner, Sgt. Holly Keegel. Both Keegel and Harteau joined the Minneapolis Police Department in 1987.
Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/WHzmY4) reports Harteau said her guiding principle as chief is that every officer's actions should reflect how they would want their family members to be treated.
Harteau replaces Tim Dolan, who retired in November.
