The trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with Jury selection beginning this week. The City of Minneapolis is working with Hennepin County, the State of Minnesota, and Federal partners to have a coordinated safety plan during the trial and after the verdict, collectively known as Operation Safety Net.
The goal of this effort is to preserve and protect first amendment non-violent protests and demonstrations, and to prevent large scale violent civil disturbances, property damage, and more. Businesses have faced a tremendous amount of challenges over the past 13 months, through the pandemic and unrest. With the impact from last year’s unrest still visible, business and property owners want to know what they have to do to keep their properties secure and workers and customers safe.
