On a daily basis, Minneapolis Police Officers and our community go to great lengths to keep each other safe. At times, officers and civilians even put their own personal safety aside to help others in desperate need of help.
Wednesday, the MPD was proud to honor 69 officers and 37 community members in our annual award ceremony.
It is important to note that 26 Minneapolis Police Officers will be honored for saving the lives of others. When seconds matter, officers not only need to respond quickly, they have to act heroically and their lifesaving efforts deserve recognition.
Also watch the full story behind our officer that received the Medal of Valor and a community member that received the Citizen’s Award of Commendation. The stories were so impressive that we wanted to give special recognition!
