The Minneapolis City Council has approved a new location for a Police Station to replace the one that was burned down during protests following the murder of George Floyd. The new Third Precinct station will be located blocks away from the previous site and is expected to be completed in a year and a half. The city will spend $14 million to buy an existing building and parking lot for the new station. Additionally, the council has committed to creating a "community safety center" on the site, which will offer services beyond traditional policing, such as mental health services.
