The City of Brooklyn Center over the weekend passed a sweeping public safety resolution aimed at changing how policing is performed in the city. It comes in the wake of the April shooting death of Daunte Wright by Officer Kim Potter. Daunte’s mother Katie spoke at Saturday’s meeting prior to the vote…

“34 days ago, our son, on April 11th was murdered because of just a minor traffic stop. and we stand here as a family today in regards to this resolution are a hundred percent in support of this.”

The resolution, which was backed by Brooklyn Center’s Mayor, passed by a 4-1 vote. It would create new departments for community safety, which would oversee the existing police and fire departments.
