Brooklyn Center approves police reformsThe Brooklyn Center City Council voted on Saturday to pass a police reform package, spurred by the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

The reforms aim to overhaul policing in the Minneapolis suburb. Among the measures in the package are an increase in independent oversight for the police department, a prohibition of arrests for low-level offenses, the use of unarmed civilians to handle minor traffic violations and a the creation of a new city department to oversee public safety, according to the Tribune.

Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott lauded the passage of the proposals.

“This is just the first step in a long road ahead -- but that is work that we as a city are ready to do with our community,” Elliott said in a tweet. “There will be lots of questions to answer, lots of learning, and lots of opportunity for the community to be at the center of this change.”
