The function of the Public Safety Task Force is to facilitate active participation by the DMNA board and membership in the ongoing debates about public safety in Minneapolis.  The task force will work to advance the “Guiding Principles for Police Reform and Public Safety” (adopted 7-6-20), within the general framework of the DMNA mission and goals.  Please review the guiding principles before you complete this application; you may wish to refer to them in your responses.
 
The task force is designed as a working group, and membership will require a significant time commitment, probably entailing several hours a week.  Every member will be working on one or more task areas.  Online meetings will be held biweekly, and frequent email/online communication should be expected.  The task force is initially authorized through October 2020, when a report of its work will be presented at the annual DMNA meeting.
 
The task force will develop specific tasks that address the function stated above.  General objectives are: to encourage downtown residents to respond to public comment opportunities on public safety issues; to advise the DMNA on board responses to community safety issues; to collect & report relevant neighborhood data; to develop & distribute public information materials; and to develop recommendations to the DMNA Board on how the neighborhood association can actively contribute to public safety in our neighborhood.
