The Minneapolis City Council voted 8 to 5 to approve the reappointment of Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan on Friday.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak nominated Dolan for a second term. The council decision followed significant debate over the controversial chief and multiple meetings, including a public hearing.
Councilmember Don Samuels, Ward 5, one of Dolan’s supporters, praised him for negating the “visceral impact” of the violent crime felt in north Minneapolis.
Crime rates in Minneapolis decreased significantly from 2006 to 2009 during Dolan’s first term.
However, dissenters, such as Councilmember Cam Gordon, Ward 2, criticized the lack of progress Dolan has made in council directives like police oversight. Dolan also faced significant criticism for exceeding his allotted budget.
