Tip leads to police corruption probe

Tony Kennedy and Paul McEnroe of the Star Tribune in Minneapolis wrote a four-part narrative investigation, “The Informant,” to chronicle a public corruption probe of Minneapolis police. Federal agents and the Minneapolis Police Department launched the investigation in late 2006 after an informant’s tip alleging that police officers were providing gang leaders with confidential police information in exchange for bribes and prostitutes. The series used confidential police internal affairs documents to piece together how the investigation unfolded and progressed.
