DMNA establishes Public Safety Task Force

The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association recently established a Public Safety Task Force.  The task force will facilitate active participation by the DMNA Board and residents of the downtown neighborhoods in the ongoing debates about public safety in Minneapolis. The task force will also help advance the “Guiding Principles for Police Reform and Public Safety” (adopted 7-6-20), within the general framework of the DMNA mission and goals.

The task force will develop a specific work plan that will address the function stated above. Its general objectives are: to encourage downtown residents to respond to public comment opportunities on public safety issues; to advise the DMNA on board responses to community safety issues; to collect & report relevant neighborhood data; to develop & distribute public information materials; and to develop recommendations to the DMNA Board on how the neighborhood association can actively contribute to public safety in our neighborhood.
