Officials consider Century Plaza for Minneapolis 3rd Precinct

Century Plaza to hold Minneapolis 3rd Precinct

Council members voted to buy part of the building which is actually located outside the third precinct.

The Minneapolis City Council is considering moving forward with a plan to make Century Plaza the new home for the 3rd Police Precinct.

The city would pay about $25 million for several floors of the building. Officials say officers would not move there until January 2025.

The Minneapolis City Council committee of the whole discussed the plan earlier this week, and the full City Council is expected to take up the measure during Thursday’s meeting.

The Minneapolis Third Precinct was burned down in 2020 during riots following the murder of George Floyd.

Since then, the Minneapolis City Council considered multiple options for stationing officers that serve the area.

The 75 officers assigned to the 3rd Precinct have been working out of temporary office space in downtown Minneapolis along Third Street.
