The new standards come after a proposal by the Minneapolis City Council to dismantle the police force following the death of George Floyd

, a handcuffed Black man who died after a white police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes.

Arradondo said the change would align with the rules for civilians, who are not allowed to watch body camera footage for an incident in which they may be potential suspects. The framework of police departments across the country has been questioned after recent police killings. Former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s death. Three other officers were charged with aiding and abetting both second-degree murder and manslaughter.

Advocates call for community led mental health crisis intervention, not policeDeaths and injuries involving police during so-called wellness checks coupled with recent protests against police brutality are generating scrutiny over how officers respond to people struggling with mental health challenges. And when that community member is faced with the aggression and violence that often leads to the call for help in the first place...ummm 911, we need some help.... TRAINING...MORE COURSES, SPECIALIZED OFFICERS/UNITS...please do the right thing. Yes, this could work, but you have to have a lot of qualified people around to be there to do this for the Police. And I'm very sorry but you don't have enough people to do the job. Media and journalists should be the first responders
