Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, shown in February, told the City Council's Public Safety Committee on Wednesday that the department's current staffing model has been broken for years and needs to be fixed.

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo wants to add 400 more patrol officers by 2025, saying they are urgently needed to improve lagging response times while taking pressure off street cops and giving them more time to engage with residents.

In his most forceful comments yet on staffing, Arradondo said the department's current staffing model has been broken for years and needs to be fixed, calling it a "critical time" for the state's largest law enforcement agency. The situation, he said, has resulted in "current MPD resources being strained to capacity - and quite frankly we're hemorrhaging."
