There seems to be some confusion these days over police departments. The St. Paul police are a city department and not part o the federal government. They are funded and managed on the city level. The city council and the mayor are responsible for the police department.
Funding for police and fire comes from our property taxes.
How you vote in the city council or mayoral race can directly impact the police department. How you vote for president will not directly impact the police department.
