Minneapolis city council members voted Friday to narrowly approve nearly $500,000 in additional funds for the city’s police department to go toward the hiring of 20 to 40 officers from outside police forces.
City council members voted 7 to 6 to approve the $496,800 in funding for Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) to bring in personnel from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Department and Metropolitan Council/Metro Transit Police, despite a reported history of disagreements between police and city officials over whether doing so would be an appropriate use of the money.
did any city actually close or reduce their police forces this year?

And so it goes. Hopefully one day we can find additional solutions to our problems.
So long as one day, we're not so retarded as to think, "Let's send social workers to a gun fight instead!"

I can't believe that anybody in a law enforcement career would go anywhere near that city or any of the others that pulled this crap. Seems like whatever they offer in compensation wouldn't be worth putting life, liberty and reputation on the line.
I'd rather flip burgers.
