Ramsey Co. Sheriff Bob Fletcher calls for special session to address rising crime

RAMSEY COUNTY, Minn. — With less than two weeks until Election Day, the Ramsey County sheriff wants lawmakers to come back for a special session.

Crime has been a big topic before the Nov. 8 election.

Sheriff Bob Fletcher says with a $12 billion surplus, that money could be going to crime prevention strategies.

Fletcher says regardless of who wins that day, lawmakers should come back the next day and prove they’re serious about doing something about crime – and only crime.

“It doesn’t have to be all issues. Some of those issues can wait until July. Crime can’t wait. We cannot wait. We are drowning right now,” Fletcher said.

Both the governor and legislative leaders released statements in response to the press conference, with both sides blaming the other for not doing more to tackle crime.
