Minneapolis City Council narrowly approved a plan Friday that allows the city to bring in outside police officers to help amid a shortage.

The additional officers — likely from the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and Metro Transit Police — would help the city respond to 911 calls and violent hot spots amid a rise in violent crime.

The proposal drew a fiery discussion when it went through a council committee earlier this week but passed Friday without any further discussion.

Hope it helps with decreasing the higher crime rates that Minneapolis has been experiencing. Hope it doesn’t cost that much more too. The Democrats efforts to defund the police does seem to have led to some trouble.
