St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter will ask the City Council for more than $1 million in additional public safety funds on Wednesday, after a tumultuous few months that have brought the capital city's homicide total to a 25-year high.

He will make his presentation at the council's regular afternoon meeting. It's unclear what new policies or programs his proposal might include, though he has advocated for a multifaceted approach to public safety that involves traditional policing and community investments.
