The City of Minneapolis has released the public personnel files of police officers Mohamed Noor and Matthew Harrity, the two officers involved in the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Justine Damond on July 15 in south Minneapolis.
The files were released on the city's website Monday. The personnel file for Noor -- the officer who is said to have fired the shots that killed Damond -- shows he passed the Peace Officer Licensing Examination in August 2015 and became a licensed officer with the department on Sept. 6 of that year.
That promotion raised his base pay rate from the cadet rate of $19.62 per hour to $26.97 per hour. His pay rate was then raised to $28.32 on Sept. 4 of last year.
Noor spent time in the 2nd and 3rd precincts before being assigned in May 2016 to the 5th Precinct.
His training records indicate he passed an annual semi-automatic handgun and shotgun qualification in January 2017.
The file also show that Noor -- who previously worked as a hotel manager at Extended Stay Hotels in Bloomington, among other jobs -- signed papers agreeing to a $2,396 loan from the City of Minneapolis to assist in his education and training as a cadet in the Minneapolis Police Loan Cadet Education Agreement.
That agreement, outlined in his file, states the loan is reduced by $66.56 for each month an employee works full-time. At the end of three years, the loan is considered paid in full.
Any cadet who leaves the department voluntarily before that time will be required to pay back the full amount of the loan. A cadet released from the program or employment with the department will be excused from paying back the outstanding balance on the loan, the file shows.
Harrity's file shows he passed the Peace Officer Licensing Examination on Dec. 18, 2015.
His pay rate was increased to $28.32 in January of this year.
