Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz calls special session for police reform

"This special session, gives us the opportunity of what Minnesotans want to see us do these ideas have been around for generations," said Governor Walz.

Walz says he supports the recommendations on police reform and accountability that were introduced by the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous (POCI) Caucus and the Attorney General's Police-Involved Deadly Force Encounters Working Group.

The proposals support use of force reform; funding for alternatives to policing; greater police oversight; voting restoration; community healing; and prosecutorial, investigatory, and training reform.
