Minneapolis Council Moves To Defund Police, Establish ‘Holistic’ Public Safety Force

The killing of George Floyd by police has sparked ongoing protests calling for the city to defund the Minneapolis Police Department. On Friday, the city council took the first of many steps to make that a reality.

Under the plan, the existing police would be largely replaced with “a department of community safety and violence prevention,” which will prioritize a “public health-oriented approach.”
