Dozens of officers get marching orders as part of 'Operation Safe Summer' in Minneapolis


Leila Navidi, Star Tribune

Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara spoke Wednesday about "Operation Safe Summer" at a Minneapolis Police Department training center in Minneapolis.

Crime hot spots in Minneapolis will be saturated with law enforcement at specific times under an initiative detailed Wednesday ahead of the warm summer days and nights ahead.

The "Operation Safe Summer" briefing Wednesday in the Police Department training center, with many of the top legal brass acting for the most part as observers along with members of the media, was complete with charts, graphs and maps on a big screen touting reductions in crime. The contingent included Minneapolis police officers and Hennepin County sheriff's deputies, many of them in plain clothes.

The officers learned when they will saturate targeted areas of the city - in uniform and undercover - with the focus on crime hot spots on the North Side, downtown and along and near E. Lake Street.
