The Public Safety & Regulatory Services committee has signed on to a pledge to reduce domestic violence in Minneapolis. I was fully supportive of this action. Domestic violence is a huge issue and is inseparable from the work currently underway to prevent youth violence.
In the committee discussion today, I asked for more clarity on our goals. What do we mean, when we call for a reduction in domestic violence? How will we measure our success, or lack thereof? I will continue to push for concrete goals, as well as the resources to meet them, on this absolutely critical issue.
