A proposal that asks voters to replace the Minneapolis Police Department following George Floyd's death will head to the City Council for consideration next week.

A proposal that asks voters to replace the Minneapolis Police Department in the wake of George Floyd's death will head to the City Council for consideration next week.

A City Council committee voted 5-1 Thursday to advance the proposal following a discussion about whether it would fulfill promises to increase accountability for police and gather community input as they seek to build a new public safety system.

Council Member Linea Palmisano, the lone dissenter on the council's Public Health & Safety Committee, said she feared the latest proposal was too similar to ones that had failed in the past and would only further blur lines of accountability for police.
