St. Paul spent $19K on police expenses for Women's March


January 26, 2017

ST. PAUL — The city of St. Paul spent $19,000 to staff police officers at the Women’s March on Saturday, which drew 90,000 to 100,000 people, the mayor’s office said Tuesday.

By comparison, St. Paul spent $1.9 million in costs last summer related to protests following the shooting of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights. A large portion of the expenses — about $750,000 — came July 8 to July 11 when protesters shut down Interstate 94.
