(Brooklyn Center, MN) — Brooklyn Center is moving forward with funding for alternative public safety programs. Debate was heated at last night’s city council meeting, where members voted five to zero to approve one-point-three million dollars for a new agency proposed after the officer-involved shooting of Daunte Wright in April. Unarmed workers will enforce non-moving traffic violations and mental health response teams will be deployed. Three police officer positions will be retained.
