Thursday, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey released his 2020 budget proposal, which addressed a recent uptick in crime.

In his budget, Frey requested 14 additional sworn police officers. However, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo added he will still raise his concerns about the need for more officers on the streets of Minneapolis.
