This morning I joined Mayor Carter and other community leaders for an important announcement about our new St. Paul police Chief, Axel Henry.
Public safety is a top priority for St. Paul and fundamental to building vitality in our community. Renewing our focus on improving public safety, while building trust and respect in the community seems more important than ever. With his experience and perspective, Chief Henry is well-positioned to continue building on the culture that he's now charged with leading and we are here to support him.
St. Paul faces very real challenges in terms of public safety, and Henry - a seasoned veteran within the St. Paul Police Department and a Saint Paul Native - understands the nuances of our community and the challenges we are facing. I was honored to be a part of this selection process. The candidate pool was very strong, particularly from within the SPPD itself. I look forward to working with Chief Henry as he steps into this important role.
