Meetings with police leaders

He’s met with police chiefs in New Hope, Brooklyn Center, Robbinsdale, Crystal and Minneapolis about how guns are proliferating throughout the area, where they’re coming from and how they are getting into the hands of young people, Smith said.

And he met with Hennepin County Sheriff Richard Stanek last Friday about holding a workshop this summer to encourage people to call anonymous tip lines about crimes, without worry that officers will show up on their doorstep, Smith said.
