Minneapolis City Council voted to grant $496,800 to help City's Police Department to hire emergency staff.
According to Minnesota Public Radio News, Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said that he needs 20 to 40 extra forces from outside to deal with the rising violence. The city would get help from Hennepin County sheriff's deputies and Metro Transit police officers under the plan proposed by Mayor Jacob Frey. Salaries and benefits of the officers would be reimbursed to the agencies by the city.
Mayor said that he supports the idea of Arradondo for additional forces for the safety of the public. He is proposing $500,000 for extra staff and $5 million in additional overtime for the Minnesota Police Department.
