A City of Eden Prairie effort to reflect on race equity, diversity, and inclusion following the murder of George Floyd in May 2020 has resulted in a Race Equity Report produced by the city’s Human Rights and Diversity Commission. The report will be formally presented to the Eden Prairie City Council on Tuesday, Jan. 4.
Among the commission’s recommendation is that the city enhance or expand its “de-escalation” training for Eden Prairie police officers and firefighters so that these techniques are top-of-mind.
For more information about the Jan. 4 meeting of the city council, which starts at 7 p.m. at the Eden Prairie City Center, go to www.edenprairie.org.
