(KSTP) - Wednesday, the future of the Minneapolis Police Department will be, once again, up for debate. 

The city's charter commission is expected to decide whether to approve a proposal to replace the police department, moving it one step closer to the November ballot.

This will be the second of two votes by the commission that could reshape how policing looks in the city. 

The first one happened last week and was unsuccessful. It would have eliminated the minimum staffing requirement for the police department based on the population. 

Wednesday's vote would have a much bigger impact, with the decision being to eliminate the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a department of community safety and violence prevention, something the majority of the city council backs.
