White House chooses Minneapolis, St. Paul for violence prevention strategy



Mpls. Mayor Jacob Frey plans to use initial federal funds for violence prevention and police resources.

The Biden administration announced that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence can use American Rescue Plan funding to rehire police officers to pre-pandemic levels, pay overtime, upgrade technology and boost prosecution of gun crimes.

The White House also declared Wednesday that the administration will convene a Community Violence Intervention Collaborative of 15 jurisdictions, including Minneapolis and St. Paul, that are committing to use a portion of their COVID-19 relief to address summer violence.

Over the next year and a half, the administration will meet with local officials as part of that collaborative.
