Minneapolis leaders push ahead with efforts to change police


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis leaders who pledged to dismantle the city’s Police Department in the wake of George Floyd’s death won’t achieve the type of structural overhaul to public safety they hoped for – at least not this year.

City leaders have the political will for change, but they face a long and challenging path to rebuilding the oft-criticized department.

The City Council and mayor’s office want to invest in new ways to think about public safety.

Meanwhile, the police chief wants a review of the grievance and arbitration process that makes it hard to get rid of problem officers.
