Statement from Chief Arradondo on Death of Jenna Bixby

On behalf of the MPD I want to extend our heartfelt condolences to MECC dispatcher Jenna Bixby’s family, friends and her extended 911 family. Jenna died as a result of a traffic incident that took her life Saturday evening. Jenna was a dedicated and professional emergency communications dispatcher who kept Minneapolis residents and MPD officers safe during her shift. Her life was sadly taken as she was on her way to work to keep us all safe. To Jenna’s family and our MECC partners please know you have our support during this very difficult time.
