MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – This will be the last year the city of St. Anthony’s police department will patrol Falcon Heights.

The Star Tribune reports the St. Anthony city council made it official at Tuesday night’s meeting.

A contract between the two cities had an opt-out clause allowing the termination at the end of this year instead of 2019.

Falcon Heights must find new policing services by Jan. 1.

This all follows the deadly shooting of Philando Castile by now former St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez last summer.
